DescriptionThis is a case study of Newark's experimental resource recovery program, begun in 1975, six years before the region began solid waste planning. Through this program, Newark developed several innovative approaches, including the incorporation of recycling into its waste-to-energy facility plans and the use of economic development objectives in its plans. Newark's resource recovery program is one of the few programs in the country developed to realize the economic development benefits of resource recovery. Although the report acknowledges mistakes made in planning, the lessons learned serve as useful studies for other cities.
