The solid waste disposal industry in the United States is confronted with a tremendous challenge. While being transformed, almost overnight, into a sophisticated organization of collectors and disposers, having to adhere to new and complex environmental laws, we are handling even greater demands for service. New laws and regulations are being enacted so rapidly that many of our present methods of operating, and our present equipment, are being made obsolete before we can develop suitable replacements. The energy and talents of the automotive and supporting industries are urgently needed to design and produce new types of collection equipment that will be economical, safe, and capable of meeting this ever growing challenge.
