The objective of the study was to develop a regional approach to solid wastes management for the Lower Rio Grande Valley (Cameron and Hidalgo Counties) in the State of Texas. The solid waste production was determined by weighing the municipal refuse and brush collected by trucks in several communities in the Valley. A secondary objective was the investigation of the feasibility of utilizing the existing railroad system as an integral part of the regional refuse disposal operation. Economic factors indicate the rail-haul may be the best method for removing refuse. Recommendations are given.
