This report deals with energy conservation through reduction in generation of post-consumer solid waste. The objective, scope, methodology and summary of the report are presented in Section 1. Section 2 contains the conclusions. Section 3 presents a review of output and input approaches to estimate the quantity and composition of post-consumer solid waste. Comparative notes on the two methods are included. Section 4 contains a compilation of estimates of energy consumed in the manufacture of discarded materials and in handling the solid waste. Section 5 studies potentials and possibilities of reducing refuse and estimates corresponding energy savings. Twenty examples of opportunities to reduce refuse at government, policy-maker, manufacturer, and consumer levels are proposed. The energy intensiveness of materials found in the waste stream, total energy residuals embedded in each material, and possible candidates for reduction with greatest energy savings are also presented.
