Strategic waste management
A robust strategy for the management of your waste and materials flows is the cornerstone of all your waste management decision making and operational activity, whether a commercial organisation or local authority. Good practice suggests that a clear, concise and target driven strategy will help set a focus for activity in relation to waste and resource management. This strategy can be part of a wider commitment to reduce the impacts of activity on the environment and global climate.
