Title:Report to Congress on Flow Control and Municipal Solid Waste
Document Date:03/15/1995
Description:This report discusses flow controls, defined as legal authorities used by state and local governments to designate where municipal solid waste (MSW) must be taken for processing, treatment, or disposal. This report presents a comparative review of states with and without flow control authority, identifies the impact of flow control ordinances on protection of human health and the environment, and characterizes the impact of flow control on the development of state and local waste management capacity and on the achievement of state and local goals for source reduction, reuse, and recycling. Appendices include a summary of public comments on flow control; legal decisions concerning MSW flow controls; a summary matrix of state flow control authorities; flow control case studies; and technical analyses of waste generation, composting, recycling, waste-to-energy, and landfills.
