Recycling of Metals and Materials: A Selected Bibliography.
Seidman, Ruth K., Comp.; Castrow, Lee, Comp.
Recycling of metals and materials has as its purpose the easing of two major environmental crises. First, we re-utilize scarce and non-renewable resources. Second, solid waste disposal problems can be alleviated. Industry has long been concerned with reclaiming its own waste products, and is now beginning to respond to the need for dealing with municipal waste disposal problems. Cities are faced with expensive programs; dumps are ugly and unsanitary; land for dumping is in short supply. Large-scale recycling of industrial and municipal wastes is a hopeful approach both to the resource and the solid waste disposal dilemma. Since recycling is currently an important research and development area, a bibliography on this subject should be useful to special librarians in the metals and materials field. Included is a selection of research reports, articles, and books, as well as industry and government brochures on the topic. (Author)
