Garbage Pollution Has a Solution: The Sanitary Landfill.
Andresen, Ruth
The principle ways in which communities solve the growing problems of solid waste disposal are studied in this set of audio-visual materials prepared for grades 6-12. A 58-frame colored filmstrip, cassette tape narration, and teacher's guide focus upon the Monterey Bay area of California. Topics examined range from types of disposal sites, the sanitary landfill, reclamation and recreational use of landfill to air and water pollution controls, vector controls, and resource collection and recycling. The teacher's guide reviews the basic concepts about sanitary landfills first and then reproduces line drawings of all the filmstrip frames, the complete text of the narration, diagrams of classes of disposal sites, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography. It is suggested this set of materials be used in ecology, social studies, science, and environmental education classes. (BL)
