Abstract
An industrial solid waste survey was conducted to compile information on the types and amounts of solid waste generated and the solid waste management techniques employed by Idaho's manufacturing industries. The survey was conducted using personal interviews. The conversion of municipal, county, and company-owned dumps to sanitary landfills will alleviate the majority of unacceptable solid waste practices. In some instances, collection and storage practices should also be updated. A comprehensive company-wide analysis and restructuring of the companies' existing solid waste practices should prove to be economically beneficial as well as helping to project a progressive company image. A well developed, comprehensive recycling plan at all levels appears to be the ultimate answer to the growing solid waste problem. (Modified author abstract)
