Abstract

Solving the problem of volume is often the key to successful solid waste management. The low bulk density of solid waste requires costly storage containers at the point of generation, greatly influences the cost and difficulty of collection and handling, and is the primary factor in setting the cost and scale of landfill and other ultimate disposal operations.
