dc.description.abstractSolid waste management is a major concern in the Houston-Galveston region, as it is throughout Texas and the nation. Rising disposal costs and public interest in resource conservation will bring changes in the region's approach to solid waste management. The region as a whole has sufficient landfill capacity to last approximately 13 years; however, this landfill space is not evenly distributed within the region. Federal regulations have put new environmental safeguards on landfills. These regulations will also increase disposal costs, putting some communities out of the landfill business. This report updates H-GAC's 1985 Action Guide for Solid Waste Management 1985-2000--Texas' first state-approved regional solid waste plan.en_US
