Handbook of Solid Waste Management 2nd Edition presents an integrated approach to the planning, design and management of economical and environmentally responsible solid waste disposal systems. The book uses a panel of 20 industry and government experts to provide readers with the tools to design a solid waste management system capable of disposing of waste in a cost-efficient and environmentally responsible manner. The book focuses on six primary functions of an integrated system (source reduction, toxicity reduction, recycling and reuse, composting, waste- to-energy combustion, landfilling) and explores each technology by examining its problems, costs, legal and social ramifications.
