Intends to encourage waste minimization and product reuse as much as feasible. If this isn’t possible, it prefers to recycle, followed by generating energy from waste. Simply disposing of waste, for example in a landfill, is the most detrimental option for the environment and people’s health, although being one of the cheapest options.
In our position paper, we argue that mandating recycled content is a critical market signal for generating significant recyclate demand and spurring investments in innovative recycling technologies and infrastructure.
While the amount of waste generated varies from incident to incident, it is frequently higher than the amount of rubbish handled by many communities each year.
The methods and actions required to manage trash from its inception to its final disposal are referred to as waste management. Industrial, biological, residential, municipal, organic, biomedical, and radioactive wastes are all dealt with via waste management.
Garbage management minimizes the negative impact of waste on the environment, human health, and other factors. It can also assist in the reuse or recycling of resources such as paper, cans, and glass. There are several types of waste management, including solid, liquid, gaseous, and hazardous waste disposal.
An key goal of waste management during any incident should be to reduce the amount of disposable garbage and conserve valuable, restricted landfill space. This goal can be achieved by repurposing and recycling as much garbage as possible.
When compared to the outcomes of traditional discrete waste management programmes, integrated waste management solutions can be highly useful and influential in a variety of ways.
Waste management is a conduit that connects producers, consumers, and outputs to environmental compartments, with the overall purpose of clearing residues and repurposing cleared materials and natural resources.

This improved PET plastic recycling facility will be the world’s largest, with the capacity to create the equivalent of 4.2 billion food-grade beverage bottles made of 100 percent recycled and infinitely recyclable PET plastic per year.
In Serres, Central Macedonia, a waste treatment facility with a 63 000 t/y capacity is being constructed to increase municipal trash recycling and remove biodegradable garbage from landfills. A cleaner environment will result from better waste management, which will also open up new business and job prospects.
All of the municipalities in the Regional Unit of Serres and the Municipality of Kilkis will be served by the facility. Glass, metal, plastic, and paper will all be recycled separately. Individual towns’ organic waste collections will be processed into compost, which can then be utilised to rehabilitate quarries, spruce up farms, or spruce up suburban gardens.
The largest open landfill still in operation in Europe is the Vina landfill. Every day, 1,500 tonnes of domestic waste and 3,000 tonnes of construction debris are disposed of at the dump in the form of 600 truckloads of garbage.
Beo ista Energija, a special-purpose vehicle established by global utility company SUEZ, the Japanese conglomerate ITOCHU, and Marguerite Fund II, a pan-European equity fund, is receiving financing and guarantees from IFC and the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), members of the World Bank Group, in order to close the current landfill and construct and operate the new landfill and waste facilities.
The new Vina landfill is expected to last 30 years with contemporary and sustainable waste handling techniques.
