This report covers an intensive three-month study of solid waste issues by the National League of Cities and the United States Conference of Mayors. Municipal capability has been observed in the context of a basic federal strategy toward comprehensive solid waste management. Major issue areas are noted including collection and transportation, disposal and resource recovery, regulation and source reduction, financing and economic incentives, appropriate inter-governmental roles and problems peculiar to municipal management. Within this tight time frame, assessment is made of the financial, managerial and technical assistance needs of the nation's cities in solid waste management.
