THE WASTEBOOK is an important innovation.  Shifting the UK away from its present wasteful ways and towards a society where waste minimisation and resource efficiency are the norm is a huge challenge, but it is a challenge that must be met.  This 'book' is an important contribution.

THE WASTEBOOK shows that many of the resources that presently go to waste can be used usefully by others, and it helps waste producers identify recycling opportunities for wastes that have hitherto gone to landfill.

It is essential reading, not only for those who produce waste or use resources in the area, but for the waste industry as a whole.  Closing the loop starts here !
