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.
