Agencies of the Federal government have been assigned the responsibility of carrying out many programs, some of which affect either the generation or recycling of solid wastes throughout the country. The effects on solid waste generation and recycling of most of the approximately 1,000 Federal agencies are minimal or nonexistent; however, some of the Agencies' programs have a very direct effect. The 12 agencies identified as having the most influence are the subject of the report. In addition to determining the extent of the respective agency influences, the report contains several specific recommendations for improving the Federal role in national solid waste management.
