Municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal has been a growing concern for decades. In the 1990s, the problems have multiplied and reached critical mass for many communities. This book examines various methods of treatment and disposal as "process control" examples on a societal scale. Technical enough for the municipal engineer who must make the solutions work, this book also provides the information needed by municipal leaders to evaluate MSW disposal options, and to select solutions that work today and won't harm future generations.
