From Library Journal:

Do we want to take our throwaway society from landfilling to "moonfilling" via the "consumerism blitz" and the "end-of-the-pipe" approach, or do we want to provide political and economic support to reasoned waste alternatives--reduction, reuse, recycling? This book is a contemporary history and sociology of solid waste from the turn of the century to the present day and was adapted from an award-winning report by UCLA graduate students. It provides a more substantive analysis of waste management than the recent excellent critique of mass incineration, Rush To Burn: Solving America's Garbage Crisis ( LJ 7/89). To stimulate public debate on this important topic, libraries need both.
