The Kansas City Metropolitan Area consists of three counties in Kansas and five in Missouri and covers approximately 3,800 square miles. The area is divided further by the Missouri and Kansas Rivers. The two largest cities are Kansas City, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri. In 1969, the Metropolitan Planning Commission-Kansas City Region (now Mid-American Regional Council-MARC), carried out a solid waste management planning study that led to recommendations about improving the system in the area. One of the most important recommendations was that sanitary landfilling should be used to dispose of solid waste collected within the area. The report considers the following topics: Site selection; site development; site operation; environmental assessment; economic assessment; and, public impact.
