Solid Waste Management Systems in the Rural Southeast

Part of an overall study of rural solid waste systems in the Southeastern United States, this report identifies and describes types and costs of 63 collection and 40 disposal systems used in rural communities and areas. Costs exceeded revenues in each case. Consolidation of small systems into larger, area-wide systems could generate more efficient, less costly operations. A later report will describe alternative systems best suited to small towns of various sizes, provide estimates on the amounts of solid waste to be generated in future years, and systems changes needed to handle this increased load.
