Abstract In 1967, a nine-member team of scientists and engineers sponsored by the federal solid wastes program investigated domestic refuse management practices in Germany. The trip was designed to evaluate the possibilities of applying German technology to U.S. needs and to encourage mutual information exchange between the two countries. The common disposal methods--landfilling, composting, and incineration--were observed and compared to similar operations in the United States. Economic, political, and philosophic differences between the two countries were shown in the dissimilar characteristics of the solid wastes and in the emphasis placed on certain management practices.
