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.
