Abstract:

Refuse disposal is an issue that must be addressed by virtually every community in the country. In the last twenty years, the demand for disposal techniques that minimize impact on the environment has increased. In addition, there has been a heightened interest in energy recovery from wastes as a method to reduce both the cost of waste disposal and national dependence on foreign energy supplies. The most common method of solid waste disposal in the United States is the utilization of sanitary landfills. Landfilling remains an economically viable method of solid waste disposal. Alternative means of disposal have often proven to be less effective in terms of both cost and in meeting solid waste disposal demands.
