A major international conference on solid waste management and secondary
materials will be held in Philadelphia on December 4 - December 7, 1990.
 
The first Conference in this series was held under the title of "First
Symposium on Industrial Resource Management" in Philadelphia in 1981 to bring
together experts from government, business, and academia to examine issues
related to various fields of solid wastes/resources management and technology.
The second Conference was held in Philadelphia in 1983, the third in New York
City in 1987, the fourth in Philadelphia in 1988, and the fifth in Philadelphia
in 1989.

Over these years, we have seen how the proper management of solid wastes has
changed from a routine engineering and public works function into a difficult
and costly operation that severely strains the resources of many communities.
We have also seen, as a response to these new challenges, a much needed
increase in the level of research and development activity in the solid waste
field.

As research and development activity has increased, the inter-disciplinary
nature of the solid waste field has become more apparent.  To effectively
manage solid wastes today, one must utilize knowledge from engineering,
public policy, economics, marketing and several other disciplines.  To ensure
a balance of opinions, the solid waste manager should gather information
from a variety of different practitioners.

This is the reason for the sixth conference in this series--to bring together
government officials, planners, engineers, consultants, researchers,
manufacturers, and others--to present the lastest advances in their respective
fields, to learn from each others experiences, and to use the knowledge they
gain at the Conference to further their own work and the solid waste field
as a whole.

The Conference should be a valuable experience for all who have an interest
in the rapidly changing world of solid waste management.
