Abstract:

On the basis of its etymology, metabolism‘s overall meaning refers to some activities which is done to survive and to protect living. A city is like a living creature: it consumes, it produces and exchanges stuff with its surrounding environment & the farther ones. Oxygen, water, food, the initial materials used for construction, vehicles fuel and such materials are considered as the needed metabolism for the urban communities, which are like living communities. Due to such a metabolism, the wastes include air pollution, urban trash removal and the like, which are among the most significant urban issues and problems. In traditional cities, the living bases of the city are usually situated around the city, whereas due to the development of both transportation industry and the connecting roads, nowadays the cities inter-dependence is not solely limited to supplying food stuff, but it includes a larger domain. Then‚ what sort of effect could the urban metabolism have on the urban environment, its suburbs and – on a larger scale – in the global level? What strategies could be provided to reduce such destructive effects? To what extend could the environment make up for the destructive effects of the urban metabolism? In this research‚ it has been tried to provide answers to such issues and strategies for reducing destructive effects of the urban metabolism for time being.

Keywords:

Urban Metabolism‚ Urban Trash‚ Environment‚ Urban Organism, Urban Ecology
