MODULE 5-2: ISWM PROJECT DESIGN
Thursday, July 20, 2006
This module addresses ISWM project design. The overall approach is that solid waste management project design should address the range of technical and non-technical issues associated with effective waste management. The model for doing this is “integrated solid waste management”, which is defined as “an optimised system of waste management practices for a given jurisdiction, based on the sound evaluation of site-specific environmental, energy, economic and socio-political considerations and which includes one or more waste management options”. Implicit in this definition is that some waste management options will involve the application of technology and some will involve the application of enhanced management frameworks (for example, improved legal frameworks or cost recovery).
