Physical characteristics such as household solid waste generation per capita, density (kg/m3) and physical composition of 519 districts within 25 regions of Peru were studied to determine specific indicators for Peru and its relationship with socioeconomic and geographic factors. The independent variables were the household per capita expenditure, human development index, total poverty index, unsatisfied basic needs and coefficient of inequality; while the dependent variables were the household solid waste generation per capita, density and physical composition of solid household waste. Data from studies of characterization of solid waste and the database updated 2014 from Information System for Solid Waste Management of Ministry of Environment were used. Household solid waste generation per capita values were worked without updating and updated in 2015, finding that the per capita generation of solid waste is 0.577 kg/person/day and the jungle region has the higher value of per capita generation. Spatially, per capita generation values are grouped in some cases following a natural geographical pattern region. In the case of the density of solid waste, this was much higher in the jungle region (233.985 kg/m3), which is the one featuring the largest amount of organic matter in waste, significantly from the other two natural regions differing. Regarding the relationship between the per capita generation of solid waste and socioeconomic factors, it was observed that her is a stronger relationship with the family per capita spending, although statistically the coefficients of determination and correlation were not strong. Finally, the growth rate of per capita generation was found in the range of 0.263 % to 14.741 %, depending on the population growth and the income of the inhabitants.
