Fowler, John M.; Mervine, Kathryn E.
This booklet is the second in a series of Environmental Resource Packets designed to encourage college science teachers to become professionally competent in selected environmental areas of study. Produced under a grant from the ESSO Education Foundation, each packet consists of a review paper(s) and a selected and annotated bibliography related to economics, politics, ethics, etc., as well as the natural sciences. In this packet dealing with solid wastes, Part One reviews aspects of solid waste management for municipal refuse (sanitary landfill, incineration, composing, new approaches), junked automobiles, industrial solid wastes, mining and processing wastes, and effects of solid wastes. Recommendations for controlling the problem are noted for each component. Part Two, the annotated bibliography, covers basic general references; solid waste management policy; economics of management; sources of municipal solid waste; automobiles, packaging and disposables; collection and transportation of municipal solid waste; solid waste processing: incineration, composing, sanitary landfill, salvage recycling and reuse; the future of municipal solid waste management; and student reading selections. Cross references are compiled after each section. Individual entries delineate the title, author's name, publisher, point of view, level of use, and a summary of the contents.
