This study basically expands on the current state of the art of construction solid waste management. The available information on solid waste generation rates, composition, disposal alternatives, and disposal costs has been compiled. In addition, data relating to waste generation rates, composition, and disposal costs for selected Army post construction activities have been compiled, analyzed, and documented. Several selected waste management alternatives have been assessed in detail. These alternatives are: Waste-to-Landfill Alternatives, Incineration, Production of Thixite, Waste-to-Bricks Process - Tekbricks, Ecological/Recycled Pavements, Wood Waste-to-Energy Alternative, Mulching, Pulverizer Systems, Handling of Special Wastes, and Integrated Management. Detailed documentation of the assessment analyses has been developed in this report. Relevant information relating to the above alternatives is summarized in the following two pages.
