How to use the Waste Management Guide

The Guide to Waste Management provides practical information on how to identify and manage the waste produced in your institution. This is a complex subject to describe so the text includes cross-references throughout and includes information on relevant legislation, together with action advice on how to comply with any particular aspect of the law. You don’t have to read the entire guide before you start, you can simply go the section you are interested in and follow the links.
