吉田, 英樹

The disaster wastes in a small town was surveyed for those quantity and quality in order to evaluate a safe and environmental sound management of those wastes. As a result the total amount of the disaster wastes was about 1,000 tons and 49% of those wastes were directly disposed in a sanitary landfill though timbers or electrical appliances were recycled. Such high rate of direct disposal resulted from poor separated disaster wastes generated in an early stage of the disaster remediation.
