Waste Guide

Welcome to the Sustainability Exchange Waste Guide.

There are numerous textbooks and reference manuals on waste management, but most have an industry focus and few are ‘step by step’ or ‘how to do it’ guides. In recognition of this, EAUC published “A Practical Waste Management Guide for Universities and Colleges”. Originally published in 2001, the guide has been periodically updated since then, thanks to funding from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE).

This on-line waste management guide also has numerous links to other sources of information and guidance. There are downloadable templates, which can be used or adapted to assist with managing waste streams.
