As in many developing countries the generation of clinical waste has increased significantly over the last few decades, management of this kind of waste continues to be a major challenge. Developing appropriate model for accurate prediction of waste generation rate can be useful in the storage, transportation, treatment and disposal of clinical waste. Selecting appropriate features is the primary requirement for offering a model. This research is an overview on the existing researches in the area of clinical waste management to investigate different findings regarding associated factors on quantity of waste generation. The aim is to find, integrate and enhance accessibility to hospital key factors in waste generation forecasting. It is revealed that the number of patients, number of beds, bed occupancy rate and type of hospitals were as the most important factors in waste generation.
