Resource recovery from wastes generated in Chautauqua County is analyzed in this comprehensive study. Presently there is about 8.26 pounds of municipal, commercial and industrial solid wastes generated each day for each person in the County or 192,100 tons per year. By 1985 it is projected that this will increase to 204,715 tons per year. Of these totals approximately 70% of municipal-commercial wastes and 50% of the industrial wastes are combustible and, therefore, present an energy recovery potential. The non-combustible portions present materials recovery potential. It is the feasibility potential of energy/materials resource recovery from Chautauqua County wastes that is evaluated in this report.
