Recycling reduces the use of natural resources by reusing materials: 94% of the natural resources used by Americans are non-renewable. Non-renewable, natural resource use has increased from 59% in and 88% in Recycling saves non-renewable resources. For example, by not recycling paper, 80% more wood will need to be harvested by The most common waste-to-energy applications in the U.S. include the combustion of municipal solid waste (MSW), landfill gas-to-energy, and the digestion of farm waste or waste water. An often overlooked waste-to-energy resource, however, is mixed organic waste .

During September and October , the Mid-America Regional Council Solid Waste Management District conducted a recycling survey of residents in the nine-county Kansas City metro area. The purpose of the survey was to evaluate current recycling activities and knowledge, determine what recycling services residents would like to see in the future.

A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. The contribution of this chapter is to deepen and widen existing knowledge on municipal solid waste (MSW) management by analyzing different energy recovery routes for MSW. The main aspects related to the composition of waste are addressed, as well as the technological routes for thermochemical and biochemical energy usage. Within the thermochemical route, incineration is currently the most Author: José Carlos Escobar Palacio, José Joaquim Conceição Soares Santos, Maria Luiza Grillo Renó, Juarez C.
