About this book

A combination of new and existing demands of waste management planning has led to a divergence of methods by which it may be put into practice. Management is an essential part of waste regulation, and provides the framework for decision-making which optimizes both environmental protection and costs. This guide marks a change in the concept of waste management planning. It sets out the issues in waste managemnt planning, suggests how they should be addressed, and provides an initial framework for best practice within which the environment agency can operate.


Part 1 Principles: development of waste management planning; the process of waste management planning; the waste management plan; the investigation - background and issues; survey of waste arisings - estimates and their improvement; the survey - planning, pitfalls and presentation; future developments; costs and benefits. Part 2 Practice: waste movements study; census of waste management facilities; key waste arisings and their estimation; selecting industrial and commercial firms for the survey; guidelines for survey by personal visit; guidelines for postal surveys; data management, checking and validation.
