Abstract:

Solid wastes collection and disposal problems are enormous and inadequacies are not only polluting our land, air, and water, but are precipitating social, economic, and political problems as well. It is assumed that any design for solid waste management must include resource recovery as an integral part of the system, but only within the limits of costbenefit advantages and, equally important, within the limits of developing markets for recovered materials. Viable alternatives are documented for solving the immediate problem and integrating the capability for conserving precious resources by enhancing the following objectives 1 Improve efficiencies 2 Enhance satisfaction 3 Increase local knowledge and information and, 4 Economically recover and process materials.
