The Waste Crisis: Landfills, Incinerators, and the Search for a Sustainable Future

This book describes the magnitude and complexity of the solid waste management problem, focusing on municipal wastes (placing them in the perspective of other wastes such as hazardous, biochemical, and radioactive debris), and seeks solutions to the problem. It describes the components of an integrated waste management program, including recycling, composting, landfills, and waste incinerators, and presents in detail the scientific and engineering principles underlying these technologies.
