This well-written reference/text presents a broad overview and analysis of the wastes produced by modern urban societies and how they are managed and disposed of. All aspects of integrated waste management are described, with emphasis on topics such as recycle centres, composting, municipal landfills, nuclear waste disposal, and incineration. Seven case histories --- the Fresh Kills (Staten Island, New York), the Guelph Wet-Dry Recycling Centre (Ontario), the East Carbon Landfill (Utah), the Swan Hills (Alberta), the Swedish Final Repository [nuclear wastes] (Sweden), the Eagle Mountain Landfill, (California), and the Lancaster County Municipal Waste Incinerator (Pennsylvania) --- illustrate a range of problems and solutions.
