System Elements


All waste system elements should be looked upon as being stages in the movement, or flow, of materials from the mining stage, via processing, production and consumption stage towards final treatment and disposal. A waste management system is a combination of several stages in the management of the flow of materials within the city and the region. A waste management plan is part of an integrated materials management strategy, in which the city makes deliberate and normative decisions about how materials should flow. The waste elements then become specific tactics to deal with specific materials after they have been consumed. Those elements include:

Prevention, Reuse, Generation, Source Separation, Recovery, Collection, Transfer, Recycling, Treatment, Disposal

Below you can find all the available resources- events, organizations, pages, weblinks- that relate to different waste system elements.
