Aims and Scope: Waste Management is an international journal devoted to the presentation and discussion of information on the generation,
prevention, characterization, monitoring, treatment, handling, reuse and ultimate residual disposition of solid wastes, both in industrialized and in
economically developing countries. The journal addresses various types of solid wastes including municipal (e.g., residential, institutional, commercial,
light industrial), agricultural, and special (e.g., C&D, health care, household hazardous wastes, sewage sludge).
Waste Management is designed for scientists, engineers, and managers, regardless of their discipline, who are involved in scientific, technical and other
issues related to solid waste management. Emphasis is placed on integrated approaches. These approaches require the blending of technical and
non-technical factors. Although the dissemination and application of innovative technical information is extremely important, the implementation of
sustainable waste management practices also requires a thorough understanding of the pertinent legal, social, economic, and regulatory issues involved.
