This module focuses on EPA's efforts in two areas: municipal and industrial solid waste. The garbage that is managed by our local governments is known as municipal solid waste (MSW). Garbage exlcuded from hazardous waste regulaton but not typically collected by collected by local governments is commonly known as industrial solid waste. This category includes domestic sewage and other wastewater treatment sludge, demolition and construction wastes, agricultural and mining residues, combustion ash, and industrial process wastes.
