Description

Management of solid waste (mainly landfills and incineration) releases a number of toxic substances, most in small quantities and at extremely low levels. Because of the wide range of pollutants, the different pathways of exposure, long-term low-level exposure, and the potential for synergism among the pollutants, concerns remain about potential health effects but there are many uncertainties involved in the assessment. This data collection contains the systematic review of epidemiological literature to determine the health effects in the vicinity of landfills and incinerators and among workers at waste processing plants. It describes studies on: [1] populations living near landfills, [2] populations living near incinerators, [3] workers of waste management plants, and [4] population living near plants using waste management technologies different from landfills and incinerators.
