Describes a number of research and demonstration projects contributing to solid waste management technology in the United States. It is intended to provide useful data for the comparative analysis of these emerging new systems without the necessity of making expensive field trips. Though semi-technical and specifically intended for public officials who authorize and fund solid waste collections and disposal operations, the film is also understandable to non-technicians.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
