CE 588 Solid Waste Management

Large amounts of municipal solid waste are generated in the U.S..  This waste must be managed in a manner that protects human health and the  environment.   While recycling  has   become a popular management option,  there is still a need for final disposal (such as incineration or landfilling).  In addition, there is a need to increase reuse and prevention of waste.   This course examines  each of these   management options and how to implement them.  The designs of hauling routes, transfer stations, and municipal landfills are covered.

This course  requires CE 380 or  the  consent of  the  instructor.
