Abstract Section 205 of the Solid Waste Disposal Act (Public Law 89-272) as amended requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to undertake an investigation and study of resource recovery. This document, which represents EPA's Report to the President and the Congress, summarizes the Agency's investigations to date and reports on the manner in which the congressional mandate is being performed. The findings of this report are based on a number of contractual efforts and analyses by the Agency staff performed since the passage of the Resource Recovery Act. The report is organized into a summary, four major sections, and two appendixes. The first section discusses the problem to which resource recovery is the potential solution. Next, key findings related to resource recovery are presented. A section outlining major options follows. The report concludes with a discussion of EPA's program activities in resource recovery. The appendix presents summaries of information about the status of resource recovery, according to material categories and lists existing resource recovery facilities.
