The purpose of the report is (1) to summarize the current literature pertaining to the presence of metals and organics in MSW; and (2) to examine the potential impacts that both toxic metal and organics constituents in MSW may have on MSW management alternatives and human health and the environment. These impacts may include: reduction in the effectiveness of the management technique; negative characteristics of products and residuals generated by the management techniques; and negative effects on human health and the environment because of fugitive emissions, residual management, or contact with products created. The MSW management options examined include: recycling of paper, plastic, and glass; composting; waste-to-fuel processes; and landfilling.
