Alternatives to Waste Disposal. Rural Information Center Publication Series, No. 43. Revised Edition.
Moberly, Heather K., Comp.
Solid waste disposal has become a major concern in rural areas, threatening public health, ruining the environment, and hindering economic development due to an overall poor impression of areas. This bibliography serves as a starting point for small communities to examine the issues and begin planning for feasible programs for disposing or managing solid waste from plastics and paper to motor oil and yard waste. It is designed to keep people apprised of regulation and technology that benefits the planning process. The additional resource section provides information sources for offices to contact, journals and newsletters, and additional significant information needed for decision-makers and others in communities. Bibliographic citations include books, articles, handbooks and manuals, guides, and videotapes. Information resources include journals, newsletters, associations, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional offices, and state environmental offices. Funding resources listed include federal funding programs, private funding sources, and general funding resources. (JRH)
