Abstract: Rapid urbanization and economic growth are affecting an exceptional increase in the production of municipal solid waste (MSW), including packaging waste globally. Nations have a comparatively higher GDP incline to generate vast quantities of MSW. Forecasts appearance that the production of MSW through main metropolitan will increase from 1.3 and 2.2 billion tons, respectively in the year 2012 and 20251. The recycling of plastic/packaging waste materials to produced value-added material is an essential aspect for scientific research worldwide because the attenuation natural resources make a risk in future. Waste of MSW is frequently a high source of many essential materials for recycling such as plastic, glass, metal and paper. Active management of MSW can allow reclamation of essential materials of recycling and decreases of harmful impact on the environment. The waste categorization is a crucial step in MSW or many kinds of wastes, such as packaging/plastic waste management for materials recycling. Worldwide researchers have been vigorously discovering automatic categorization methods for efficiently handling of growing amounts of MSW. This review article summarizes growths in separation techniques, conversion for plastic/packaging waste in value-added products and its uses that have taken place in the area of source segregated MSW recycling, including plastic/packaging waste in the last decade.
