Abstract: 

Outlines the challenges facing solid waste
management in the United States. Identifies three
waste management tools: landfilling, recycling and waste to
energy (WTE) or incineration. Sponsored by the
plastics packaging industry, incineration is praised
as a progressive option while encouraging increased
recycling and downplaying landfilling. The video
can be used as a basis for discussion of other
available options that are not explored, such as
waste reduction and reuse. Available for loan.
