Abstract

Management of solid wastes in a cost effective and environmentally sensitive manner has become one of the most challenging infrastructure issues facing municipalities today. The problem is exacerbated by a shortage of qualified engineers. In this paper, both undergraduate and graduate courses in solid waste management that have been taught by the authors at their respective universities for over 20 years are described and available textbooks and reference materials are discussed.
