About this book

The 1990s have already seen the introduction of more environmental legislation than any other decade.

Furthermore, with EC Directives on such matters as hazardous waste, landfill, packaging and packaging waste, etc., currently being either drafted or published for consultation, we may be certain that waste management will maintain a very high profile for the foreseeable future. At present, recycling is one of the most important elements in a waste management strategy.

This book provides practical advice and guidance on recycling and considers the various methods available for collecting and recycling as much of the domestic waste as is possible. Each chapter tackles a different topic and finishes with a simple checklist to which you can refer in your day-to-day work situations.

This book will be of benefit to senior managers, recycling officers, local government offices, voluntary workers, in fact, anyone who takes an active role in the managing and recycling of waste.
