Reuse in context: Delivering the waste hierarchy [workshop]

Reuse in context: Delivering the waste hierarchy [workshop]
Waste management has changed significantly in some parts of the world since the introduction of the waste hierarchy and stayed broadly the same in others. In some parts of the EU, the waste industry has become progressively more sophisticated and technological and wastes are increasingly regarded as valuable resources to be utilised and exploited commercially rather than dumped and forgotten. This relatively recent change of emphasis reflects society’s desire to secure and manage resources in a more sustainable fashion and to protect the environment, locally as well as globally. This workshop will explore what society and the waste sector will need to do if the waste hierarchy’s original objectives are to be universally achieved.

Abstract

Waste management has changed significantly in some parts of the world since the introduction of the waste hierarchy and stayed broadly the same in others. In some parts of the EU, the waste industry has become progressively more sophisticated and technological and wastes are increasingly regarded as valuable resources to be utilised and exploited commercially rather than dumped and forgotten. This relatively recent change of emphasis reflects society’s desire to secure and manage resources in a more sustainable fashion and to protect the environment, locally as well as globally. This workshop will explore what society and the waste sector will need to do if the waste hierarchy’s original objectives are to be universally achieved.
