Abstract
The United States faces the challenge of effectively managing municipal solid waste (MSW) as the amount of waste generated per capita increases. The purpose of this document is not to compare recycling with other MSW methods but to provide a general overview of possible hazards associated with this practice. This report identifies the possible public health, occupational, and environmental hazards associated with MSW recycling. The report identifies activities that might present hazards to health or the environment. Such a risk assessment requires further study, particularly quantitative data on exposure. The scope of the document is thus limited, in line with an intent to survey for potential hazards and identify need for further work.
