This report examines the many and diverse issues associated with this field. Its five chapters discuss (1) projected trends in resource utilization, environmental pollution, and solid waste generation that give impetus to consideration of resource recovery and source reduction measures; (2) the effects of several existing Federal policies and programs on the level of use of virgin and recycled materials; (3) resource recovery systems and the markets for materials and energy recovered from post-consumer residential and commercial waste; (4) product controls, such as bans, standards, charges and deposits, directed at regulating the design or consumption of products for resource recovery or source reduction purposes; (5) studies of resource recovery and source reduction of several special wastes: automobiles, packaging, beverage containers, and rubber tires. A summary of key findings in these areas follows.
