Investigations present that changes in municipal solid waste composition and properties correlate with the size and density of the municipal solid waste type, that mechanical pre-treatment including separation by weight and size can be useful for preparation of refuse derived fuel (RDF) material and solid recovered fuel (SRF) used for energy recovery. The authors determine the parameters of separated components of the coarse fraction (lower heating value, moisture, ash content, carbon,
