The report discusses the selection of solid waste disposal sites in zones having large populations, zoning restrictions, high land costs, public unacceptability, higher priorities, and other hindrances, particularly where minimum transportation costs are unavailable. A computer program using a simulation technique is described which calculates unit transportation costs from surrounding population zones to a disposal site zone on the basis of tons of refuse supplied.
