Abstract:

Local governments consider solid waste a major urban problem, but, with diminishing natural resources and increasing land and disposal costs, alternative uses for solid waste make it potentially valuable to the Nation. Resource recovery legislation requires Federal agencies to comply with all Federal, State, and local laws. The Department of Defense and other Federal agencies are responsible for annual disposal of about 32 million tons of the 135 million tons of community and business waste. This report discusses how the Department is meeting its responsibilities indisposing of solid wastes.
