Faced with the urgent need for alternative solid waste disposal solutions, engineers in industry, as well as those involved with municipalities, are seeking direction on the economic solutions for recycling. With this important new reference, federal, state, and local engineers, environmental engineers, as well as plant managers, materials managers, and solid waste managers can learn about the recycling field. From planning to implementation, from quality control factors to cost evaluation, from the psychology of the individual recycler to integrating recycling with existing landfills, and from office paper recycling to household hazardous wastes, the reader will find coverage of every major aspect of this growing field. Presenting practical recycling solutions and information on a wide range of topics, the "Recycling Handbook" begins with an overview of recycling, federal, local, and state legislation, municipal and commercial waste streams, setting recycling priorities, separation and collection systems, processing facilities, marketing problems and solutions, public awareness programmes, and the psychology of recycling. The second section goes on to cover recyclable materials - chapter by chapter - providing information on collection, processing, transportation, marketing, new product potential, and costs. Next, the book offers details on facility design and recycling equipment, followed by a section devoted to implementation and control of recycling. The last sections cover product development using recycled materials.
