The Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1965 provides grants to state and interstate agencies for conducting surveys of solid waste practices and developing solid waste disposal plans. Community reporting survey forms included storage, collection, disposal, and budget categories. Surveys for disposal sites included a description and evaluation of the site, quantitative data, and fiscal data. This report contains preliminary statistical analyses of the survey information received by July 1, 1968. The analyses are concerned primarily with location, types, and amounts of solid wastes being collected and their disposition, and the resources required to carry out collection, processing and disposal activities.
