"Using the key environmental headlines of the 1980s as the lead-in to discuss waste management issues, the author has provided an engaging discussion of the subject. By explaining uncommon terms in short and simple words the author has made the text appealing and understandable to both professional and novice."
--Dr Syed E Hasan, University of Missouri-Kansas City

The book is comprehensive, starting with historical and regulatory background, and providing technical management knowledge for today's solid and hazardous waste management challenges."
