This report consists of a collection of studies on selected aspects of the problem of regional solid waste management planning. The research efforts fall into three main subject areas: The economics of solid waste generation recycling, and disposal; the economic and social effects of landfills; and the issues involved in local intergovernmental cooperation for regional solid waste management. The individual studies are the following: 'A Framework for Evaluating the Economic Effects of Regional Solid Waste Systems', 'Production Functions for Solid Waste Disposal', 'Solid Waste Generation Coefficients: Manufacturing Sectors', 'Solid Waste Generation Coefficients: Non-Manufacturing Sectors', 'Perceptions of Landfill Operations Held by Nearby Residents', and 'Efforts at Intermunicipal Cooperation for Solid Waste Disposal: Why They Fail'. The report also includes a summary of the studies.
