The study concerns the development of greater solid waste utilization through analysis of the secondary materials industry, its sources of supply, its consuming markets, and its economic and technological problems. Eight separate materials examined are aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, nickel and stainless steel, precious metals, paper, and textiles. Problems inhibiting increased recycling of these materials are identified, and recommended actions are proposed. A survey of the secondary materials industry was the basis for many of the identified problems and also provided numerous statistics on the scrap industry. Volume 1 provides a brief summary of the other 8 volumes, plus an analysis of activities and recycling problems common to all of the commodities. Areas of commonality include such matters as legislation and its effect on recycling, and a description of the equipment used in processing secondary materials.
