Waste Generation, Characterization, Collection, Transfer, and Disposal

This DVD is endorsed by the EPA and hosted by Dr. John Sutherlin, of the University of New Orleans' Urban Waste management and Research Center.

The U.S. produces 200 million tons of municipal solid waste per year.
Divided into two episodes, this program defines the constituent parts of the municipal solid waste stream and discusses methods of collecting, transferring, and disposing of them. The impact of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act is assessed.
