Abstract : Since enactment of the Solid Waste Disposal Act (PL 89-272) on October 20, 1965, the spotlight of publicity has been thrown on the nation's solid-wastes-management problem. By means of national conferences, symposia, public hearings, and the like, the staff of the federal solid-wastes program is carrying out a dual-purpose, public-information program. One objective of this program is to awaken a lethargic public and its elected representatives. The other is to present the solid-waste challenge to professional engineers and technical managers practicing in the disciplines involved. Those already in the field know of the rapid increase in the quantities of solid wastes that can be brought about by sir-pollution-control legislation that outlaws open burning, the increased quantities of waste generated by populations whose living habits are undergoing changes that accompany increased affluence, and the increases in demolition waste resulting from massive programs of urban renewal, central-city freeway construction, and the replacement of older buildings with modern structures.
