In a world where waste incinerators are not an option and landfills are at over capacity, cities are hard pressed to find a solution to the problem of what to do with their solid waste. Handbook of Solid Waste Management, 2/e offers a solution. This handbook offers an integrated approach to the planning, design, and management of economical and environmentally responsible solid waste disposal system. Let twenty industry and government experts provide you with the tools to design a solid waste management system capable of disposing of waste in a cost-efficient and environmentally responsible manner. Focusing on the six primary functions of an integrated system--source reduction, toxicity reduction, recycling and reuse, composting, waste- to-energy combustion, and landfilling--they explore each technology and examine its problems, costs, and legal and social ramifications.

Current development results in a linear flow from raw material to waste, which cannot be sustainable in the long term. Plus, a global population of 7 billion people means that there are 7 billion waste producers in the world. At present, dumping and landfilling are the primary practices for getting rid of municipal solid waste (MSW). However, this waste contains resources that we’ve yet to utilize. To create sustainable societies, we need to approach zero waste by recovering these resources. There are cities and countries where zero waste is close to becoming a reality. Landfilling of organic waste is forbidden in Europe, and countries such as Sweden, Germany, Belgium, and Switzerland have developed a variety of technologies to recover resources from MSW. Resource Recovery to Approach Zero Municipal Waste explores the solid waste management laws and regulations of different countries, comparing the latest resource recovery technologies and offering future perspectives. The book tackles the many technical, social, ecological, economical, and managerial aspects of this complex subject while promoting the development of sustainable societies to achieve a greener global environment.

Science-based and flexible management approaches are essential to the confirmation of predicted impacts. to ensure that mitigation measures are effective and to modify remediation or mitigation processes if necessary. By accepting more uncertainty in the environmental assessment process and adapting quickly to conditions actually encountered during the project operational phases, agencies may be able to decrease project startup time and reduce overall project costs. The CEQ’s goal is to use the experiences of the first 25 years to streamline and improve the NEPA process. By streamlining the process, the CEQ hopes to make it more efficient, to promote the integration of social, environmental, and economic factors into agency decision making, and to ensure openness in government. Additional information is available through its web site (www. On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the act, the CEQ conducted a reflective study of NEPAs effectiveness and prospects for improvements. Participants in the study included representatives of the original framers of the act and individuals who drafted the CEQ regulations, along with some members of Congress, federal agencies with NEPA implementation experience, state and local agencies, and the public. In addition to evaluating strengths, the participants also considered the potential for improving the current implementation of NEPA, identifying areas “. . . ripe for innovation, re-invention, and improvement” (9) The study concluded that NEPA has been a success because it (1) causes agencies tv examine the environmental consequences of their actions before they make final decisions, and (2) provides a framework for collaboration between the agencies causing the actions and those who will be affected by the consequences (environmental, social, and economic impacts) of their decisions. The participants identified five elements critical to NEPA effectiveness and efficient implementation, and pointed out problem areas associated with each element. Strategic Planning The NEPA process provides a framework for integrating environmental concerns directly into agency internal planning, policies and programs at an early stage. Unfortunately, the process is often either initiated too late to be effective in agency planning and decision making or applied to individual projects instead of evaluating the programs that call for those projects. Agencies then encounter delays, incur increased costs or end up with fewer alternatives available for consideration, thereby denying NEPA its full strategic planning value. Public Information and Input NEPA significantly increased public information and input into agency decision making by opening opportunities for involvement. In many cases, agencies have actively solicited ideas and concerns from the public to improve the quality of projects and reduce adverse impacts on the environment. In others, the desired level of public involvement has not been achieved, with the result being a sense on the part of citizens of dissatisfaction, frustration, and distrust, sometimes leading to litigation. Interagency Coordination NEPA and many subsequent laws have required interagency coordination in an effort to reduce conflicts, reduce duplication of effort, and to improve the environmental planning process. When information is not shared or when processes are uncoordinated, agencies and often the public may be placed in adversarial positions leading to conflicts and delays. Problems are often initiated by conflicting or different timetables, requirements, and modes of public participation. Interdisciplinary, Place-based Approach to Decision Making NEPA calls for an interdisciplinary approach to planning and decision making. When agencies bring the full range of biophysical and socioeconomic factors affecting a single place into their management and planning processes, they are in a position to make better decisions with regard to the needs of the community and minimize adverse impacts on the environment. Difficulties include lack of quality environmental baseline data, lack of early participation by resource agencies, and costs and delays associated with data collection. New tools such as modern computers, internet communications, and geographic information systems hold considerable promise for improvements in this area.

Solid waste was already a problem long before water and air pollution issues attracted public attention. Historically the problem associated with solid waste can be dated back to prehistoric days. Due to the invention of new products, technologies and services the quantity and quality of the waste have changed over the years. Waste characteristics not only depend on income, culture and geography but also on a society's economy and, situations like disasters that affect that economy. There was tremendous industrial activity in Europe during the industrial revolution. The twentieth century is recognized as the American Century and the twenty-first century is recognized as the Asian Century in which everyone wants to earn ‘as much as possible’. After Asia the currently developing Africa could next take the center stage. With transitions in their economies many countries have also witnessed an explosion of waste quantities. Solid waste problems and approaches to tackling them vary from country to country. For example, while efforts are made to collect and dispose hospital waste through separate mechanisms in India it is burnt together with municipal solid waste in Sweden. While trans-boundary movement of waste has been addressed in numerous international agreements, it still reaches developing countries in many forms. While thousands of people depend on waste for their livelihood throughout the world, many others face problems due to poor waste management. In this context solid waste has not remained an issue to be tackled by the local urban bodies alone. It has become a subject of importance for engineers as well as doctors, psychologist, economists, and climate scientists and any others. There are huge changes in waste management in different parts of the world at different times in history. To address these issues, an effort has been made by the authors to combine their experience and bring together a new text book on the theory and practice of the subject covering the important relevant literature at the same time.
