This report surveys what has been done and can be done to raise the quality of solid waste management in rural America through existing technology. The aspects covered include planning for solid waste management; types of collection, processing, and disposal methods; means of financing systems; and citizen support. Although the priority in the report deals with handling wastes from rural residences, any methods discussed can be incorporated into handling commercial, industrial, or institutional wastes in rural counties and communities. Two problem wastes--agricultural wastes and abandoned vehicles--are not covered.
