The disposal of garbage is a complex issue. Four strategies have been developed to attack the problem. They deal with: (1) waste reduction; (2) recycling; (3) energy recovery; and (4) land filling. This handbook emphasizes recycling as a method of handling the problem of dealing with solid wastes. Included are a list of the categories and uses of recyclable materials, a list of non-hazardous household substitutes, a discussion of composting, and a glossary of terms commonly used in recycling. Also discussed are policy development, community involvement, and the benefits of recycling. (CW)
