Solid Waste Management is one of the essential obligatory functions of the Urban Local Bodies/Municipal Corporation. This service is falling too short of the desired level of efficiency and satisfaction resulting in problems of health, sanitation and environmental degradation. Due to lack of serious efforts by town/city authorities, garbage and its management has become a tenacious problem.
Solid waste management generates big challenges for society due to its large variability in production and composition, and because of its sanitary and environmental impacts. To contribute in facing this situation, this book includes a worldwide overview of experiences and conceptual and technical developments attained through research and development projects. In addition to minimizing generation, considered as the most desirable practice, it includes alternatives of valuation for potentially recoverable waste and strategies to reduce final conditioning and disposition risks.

Environmental managers, engineers, and scientists who have had experience with industrial and
hazardous waste management problems have noted the need for a handbook that is comprehensive
in its scope, directly applicable to daily waste management problems of specific
industries, and widely acceptable by practicing environmental professionals and educators.

As the demand for a clean, safe environment grows, so also grows the public demand
for protection from the health hazards and environmental horrors of hazardous waste
mismanagement. Entrepreneurs of industry and commerce provide daily evidence
of the general awakening to the need for reduction or elimination of hazardous waste
sources and better management of the wastes that are generated.

At completion of this chapter, the student should:
• Have gained a perspective on the evolution of hazardous waste problems
and approaches to management in the U.S. and other industrialized nations.
• Understand the kinds of hazardous waste management/mismanagement
practices that create negative health, environmental, economic, and social
impacts and the nature of those impacts.
The quantum of wastes generated in urban centres has become one of the difficult
tasks for those responsible for their management. The problem is becoming acute
specially in economically developing countries, where there is a financial crunch, and
other resources are scarce.
Although, there are varieties of publications dealing with various topics of solid waste
management, most of these documents have been published addressing the needs of
In this book, papers pertaining to resource management for sustainable agricultural development are presented in four parts divided into ten chapters. Part I discusses the usage of water and waste management for sustainable agricultural development including aspects like irrigation management to prevent soil and ground water salinization, production of solid fuel from oil palm waste, sustainable ecomaterials and biorefinery from agroindustrial waste, nonpoint pollution from agriculture and livestock activities on surface water....
Eleven million tonnes of waste are produced yearly by the European pulp and paper industry, of which 70% originates from the production of deinked recycled paper. Wastes are very diverse in composition and consist of rejects, different types of sludges and ashes in mills having on-site incineration treatment. The production of pulp and paper from virgin pulp generates less waste but the waste has similar properties to waste from the production of deinked pulp, although with less inorganics [...].
