Abstract: Kuwait is a rich country with the highest per capita municipal waste generators in the world. Each year more than 2 million tons of solid waste is generated. There are 16 landfills, 13 of the sites are closed and 3 sites are still in operation. Al-Jahra landfill site is located about 4 km south-west of Kuwait City. Since 1986 to April 2006 about 2 million square meter of land area has been used as a waste disposal site. Al-Jahra landfill site was reactivated in August 2007 by the Kuwait Municipality. The total amount of waste received on Al-jahra landfill for the year 2016 was 137,195 ton. Mina Abdullah landfill site located about 2,5 kilometers from mina Abdullah bridge, and the site area is about 2 million square meters. Work began on the site at the end of 1991 until now. Both sites receive non-hazardous domestic, household, agricultural, commercial and industrial wastes and sand-blended waste. The total amount of waste received on mina Abdullah landfill for the year 2016 was 272,080 ton. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the composition of landfill gasses at both landfills (Al-Qurain and Al-Jeleeb), the study reveal that the amount of gas is not enough to produce electricity from Al-Jeleeb landfill while it’s enough to generate electricity from Al-Qurain landfill.
