GARBAGE DISPOSAL IN URBAN AREAS

The environmental quality, natural and man made, and how this quality may be preserved through study, research and the teaching of values is discussed. The San Francisco garbage problem is reviewed: the problems of its disposal in the neighboring city of Bisbane are given. Included are reports and recommendations from several committees established by State and Federal Governmental Agencies to investigate improved methods of coping with the waste crisis. Garbage disposal by the use of land-fills, incineration, garbage trains, sea dumping, and composting is evaluated along with other published information on the facets of urban garbage disposal.
