The solid waste management practices at the foundry of the Cincinnati Milling Machine Company were studied for one week in October 1968. The sources of process solid waste generation were the cupola, the sand reclamation system, and the settling basin. During the study week, the cupola generated 84 cu yd of slag and sand waste, the sand reclamation system generated 126 cu yd of sand waste, and the settling basin generated 42 cu yd of sludge. Waste storage within the foundry consists of open containers, closed containers, and open storage on the ground. Wastes are collected and transported daily to three landfills in both covered and open vehicles. These waste management practices were found to adequately remove the wastes from the foundry area.
