Waste - Outlook 2020 (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia)
Implementation of integrated, financially sustainable and environmentally acceptable waste management is based on several strategic principles:
the principle of solving the waste problem at the source of its generation;
separation of hazardous from non-hazardous waste streams at source;
reuse of valuable ingredients of the waste;
establishment of a rational network of waste treatment and disposal facilities;
rremediation of contaminated sites – hot-spots, mainly industrial contaminated sites and non-compliant municipal and industrial landfills;
waste, as a substitute for non-renewable natural resources, should contribute to GHG emission reductions.
