Municipal Solid Waste Management: Recycling, Resource Recovery, and Landfills. LC Science Tracer Bullet.
Meikle, Teresa, Comp.
Municipal solid waste refers to waste materials generated by residential, commercial, and institutional sources, and consists predominantly of paper, glass, metals, plastics, and food and yard waste. Within the definition of the Solid Waste Disposal Act, municipal solid waste does not include sewage sludge or hazardous waste. The three main options for management are storage in landfills, recycling, and incineration. This guide is intended for those who wish to review the literature on many aspects of municipal solid waste management, but especially reflects an emphasis on recycling and incineration with energy recovery. This document includes bibliographies under some of the following headings: (1) "Introductions to the Topic"; (2) "Subject Headings" (used by the Library of Congress, under which books on municipal solid waste management, recycling, and resource recovery can be located); (3) "Basic Texts"; (4) "Specialized Texts"; (5) "Dictionaries, Encyclopedias and Handbooks"; (6) "Bibliographies"; (7) "Conference Proceedings" (8) "Selected Conference Proceedings" (9) "Directories and Trade Catalogs"; (10) "Dissertations"; (11) "Selected Dissertations"; (12) "Government Publications"; (13) "Selected Government Publications"; (14) "Abstracting and Indexing Services"; (15) "Journals"; (16) "Representative Journal Articles"; (17) "Technical Reports"; (18) "Selected Technical Reports"; (19) "Selected Materials"; and (20) "Additional Sources of Information."
