Abstract

The expansion of the hotel sector results in an increasing generation of solid waste from this sector, being considered one of the most significant impacts caused by hospitality establishments. This article aims to analyze the generation of solid waste in the tourism industry, more specifically in the hotel sector. The databases used to carry out this review were: Scopus, Scielo, Science direct and Web of science. As a result, 300 articles were identified, of which 51 met the criteria adopted for analysis. The rate of solid waste generation in the hotel sector can vary with numerous factors, such as the number of rooms, number of beds and services offered. Thus, the average per capita generation of solid waste varies widely, from 0.32 to 6.57 kg.guest-1.day-1. The solid waste generated by hotels is basically composed of organic waste (57%) and dry waste (32%). Thus, solid waste generated in the hotel sector has great potential for recycling, since organic waste can be recycled through composting or biomethanization and dry waste can be reused, recycled or used energetically.
