Waste: A Handbook for Management gives the broadest, most complete coverage of waste in our society. The book examines a wide range of waste streams, including:
- Household waste (compostable material, paper, glass, textiles, household chemicals, plastic, water, and e-waste)
- Industrial waste (metals, building materials, tires, medical, batteries, hazardous mining, and nuclear)
- Societal waste (ocean, military, and space)
- The future of landfills and incinerators
Covering all the issues related to waste in one volume helps lead to comparisons, synergistic solutions, and a more informed society. In addition, the book offers the best ways of managing waste problems through recycling, incineration, landfill and other processes.
