Background This article describes two projects conducted recently by Sound Resource Management (SRMG) – one for the San Luis Obispo County Integrated Waste Management Authority (SLO IWMA) and the other for the Washington State Department of Ecology (WA Ecology). For both projects we used life cycle assessment (LCA) techniques to evaluate the environmental burdens associated with collection and management of municipal solid waste. Both projects compared environmental burdens from curbside… 

Life Cycle Assessment of Existing and Alternative Options for Municipal Solid Waste Management in Saint Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, Russia

A waste reform was recently introduced in Russia to divert waste from landfills. To help advance the reform, this paper presents a life cycle assessment of the municipal solid waste management system

Development of the regionalised municipal solid waste incineration (RMWI) model and its application to France

PurposeIncineration is mainly studied when municipal solid waste (MSW) treatment options are assessed in life cycle assessment case studies. A variety of incineration models have been used to create

A comprehensive economic input–output-based hybrid life-cycle assessment model is developed by tracing all of the economy-wide supply-chain impacts of three waste management strategies: recycling, landfilling, and incineration, showing that only the recycling of construction materials provided positive environmental footprint savings.

Replacing Recycling Rates with Life-Cycle Metrics as Government Materials Management Targets.

The methodology outlined here provides policy makers with one means of transitioning to life-cycle thinking in state and local waste management goal setting and planning.
