Waste Management Practices: Municipal, Hazardous, and Industrial, Second Edition
addresses the three main categories of wastes (hazardous, municipal, and “special” wastes)
covered under federal regulation outlined in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

storage, and disposal of several forms of waste.
Focusing on integrating the technical and regulatory complexities of waste management,
this book covers the historical and regulatory development of waste management and the
management of municipal solid wastes. It also addresses hazardous wastes and their
management, from the perspectives of identication, transportation, and requirements for
generators as well as treatment, storage, and disposal facilities.
