Ferrous solid waste is one component of the total problem relating to solid waste management. The study focuses attention primarily on the problems associated with recycling of obsolete ferrous scrap. The major steel companies use large quantities of in-house and prompt industrial scrap in the production of raw steel. But difficulties are being encounted. Thus the emphasis was on the factors influencing the recycling of can scrap, automobile scrap, obsolete consumer durables, and incinerator residue. The analysis suggests that recycling of ferrous solid waste would not increase markedly until the latter half of the present decade.
