This paper will discuss findings from the 2002 nationwide survey that was aimed at determining how well recycling and waste-to-energy are working together. It represents a ten-year update to the original research completed for the Integrated Waste Services Association in Washington.

This paper highlights these reasons and also features select compatibility case studies from communities around the United States.
