This far-reaching guide provides professionals of various disciplines with fast, easy access to authoritative information on source reduction, reuse, recycling, composting, contaminated soil remediation, incineration, and medical waste management. It also presents the latest developments on bioreactor landfills, wetland mitigation, remediation of landfills, waste management-related health and safety, and financial issues affecting the industry.

Topics covered in this Third Edition include:

  • The role of geotechnical engineering in a variety of environmental issues
  • Planning, marketing, and quality con trol for reuse and recycling facilities
  • Health, safety, and economic issues related to composting
  • Risk assessment of contaminated lands
  • Leachate and gas generation in landfills
  • Microbiology of landfills
  • And much more

Supplemented with hundreds of helpful drawing, tables, and photos, Design of Landfills and Integrated Solid Waste Management, Third Edition is an indispensable resource for environmental engineers, hydrogeologists, and landfill operators and owners. It is also an excellent text for environmental science and engineering courses related to waste management.
