The paper provides an overview of some case studies using the recently completed municipal solid waste decision support tool (MSW-DST) in communities across the U.S. The purpose of the overview is to help illustrate the variety of potential applications of the tool. The methodology that the MSW-DST is based on incorporates both life-cycle inventory analysis and full-cost accounting. The results of this tool are helping communities to make decisions that will result in more efficient environmental management.
