Waste Management Research satisfies the growing demand for essential information that can be practically applied by those who are responsible for the management of both municipal and industrial waste.

The journal publishes results from a broad cross section of researchers and practitioners in the field; from academic institutions, governments and the private sector. Although the journal may publish papers on any aspect of solid waste management, the main focus is on the discussion and solutions to problems that arise, primarily with manual and industrial solid wastes. In order to achieve a balanced coverage, special attention is given to papers that help to bridge the gap between academic studies and practical problems.

Topics covered include::

  • City cleaning and management of operations - including collection, treatment and disposal of waste, snow removal and sludge disposal. This does not include sewage or treatment of waste water
  • Effects of waste management practice on the environment, health and the appearance of urban areas
  • New technological developments
  • Comparative studies of competitive equipment
  • Corrective measures for 'satisfactory' waste management practice
  • Hazardous, medical and industrial waste
  • Recycling and re-use
  • Engineering, design, strategic planning and mathematical optimisation
  • Financial aspects of resource recovery - including cases where social objectives have taken precedence over economic consideration
  • Waste management in low technological areas
  • Methods suitable for developing countries will be of special interest
  • Decision support systems
  • Reviews of activities of governments, departments, institutes and trade organisations etc, working in the field of waste management; and
  • Waste management case studies
