Waste Management Journey

The status of waste management for any country in the world can be plotted somewhere in this triangle. The bottom left corner is where societies should be aiming for; 100% reuse and recycling. Achieving that is not only a matter of waste management, but very much one of producing goods in a sustainable form. Reality is that most countries in the world are still somewhere in the right bottom corner; a high percentage of landfilling of waste and some recycling and possibly some waste to energy. As landfilling is environmentally the worst option for waste management, countries should plot a desired path away from the bottom left corner towards the left edge of the triangle, finding the right mix between clean waste to energy for residual waste combined with a high percentage of reuse/recycling. AWECT can help plot this line and execute the proposed route.
