This guide presents the key issues of solid waste management in a decision-making context. It attempts to anticipate all of the important decisions which local government managers must make in the effort to develop and operate solid waste programs in a responsive, cost-effective manner. Each chapter presents an issue, describes the alternatives, gives the advantages and disadvantages, and concludes with a summary statement which may include an EPA recommendation on the issue. Four basic categories of criteria by which decisions are mde in this field are the following: costs, environmental factors, resource conservation, and institutional factors.
