The Impact of Pay-As-You-Throw Schemes on Municipal Solid Waste Management: The Exemplar Case of the County of Aschaffenburg, Germany
© Eigenbeiträge der Autoren (2/2017)
The “pay-as-you-throw” (PAYT) scheme is an economic instrument for waste management that applies the “polluter pays” principle by charging the inhabitants of municipalities according to the amount of residual, organic, and bulky waste they send for third-party waste management. When combined with well-developed infrastructure to collect the different waste fractions (residual waste, paper and cardboard, plastics, bio waste, green cuttings, and many recyclables) as well as with a good level of citizens’ awareness, its performance has frequently been linked to an increase in the collection rates of recyclables.

© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2011)
The first steps for implementation of a waste management plan are of non-technical character. The most important questions to answer are depicted. The technical development of the project depends on the results of this initial phase. Mayor issues are the analysis of the treatment system with its processing units and economy of scale. For the realization, different possible procurement models are compared. These jobs have to be achieved by experts. They prevent from fatal mistakes.

Assessing the emerging risk of nosocomial infections (HCAI) with multi-resistant germs or viruses careful management of contaminated waste needs to get increased consideration. It is a main public health imperative and responsibility to manage the infectious health care waste (IHCW) in a risk-adapted and sustainable way.

Realizing Waste Management: How to Start
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (3/2010)
Basing on over 40 years of experienced implementation waste disposal plans, the principal aspects of a prosperous realization are shown and illustrated with failed and successful cases. A project for thermal treatment of waste requires answering primarily questions about organization and communication. Technical concepts are important but should be approached in a second step. It is of crucial importance to consider experts in order to professionalize all the necessary operations.

ResourceManager: A material flow model for recycling and waste management
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
Since the ban on placing untreated waste in landfill sites (Technical Instructions on Municipal Waste) came into force in June 2005, the increasing number of material waste streams in need of coordination has led to increased complexity of the recycling and disposal structures in the waste management and recycling industry, whereby the issues of material and energy efficiency are gaining importance.

Formulation and comparative evaluation of alternative MSW management plans for Greece
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
This paper deals with the management of the domestic type of Municipal Solid Wastes (MSW) in Greece and aims at the analysis of existing Regional plans, the formulation and analysis of a new National plan and the comparative evaluation of the above alternatives. The Regional plans use numerous Integrated Waste Management Facilities (IWMF) and biological drying as the principal method of waste pre-treatment.

SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE IN KHULNA CITY OF BANGLADESH
© IWWG International Waste Working Group (10/2007)
In the rapidly growing cities of developing countries, urban solid waste management is currently been regarded as one of the most immediate and serious issues for city authorities. Due to inadequate and often inefficient solid waste management and visible environmental degredation, solid waste – generated at an increasing rate – has also become an important environmental issue for the residents of the major cities of Least Developed Asian Countries (LDACs) like Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, the urban population have been increasing at a very steep rate, about 6% and is concentrated mostly in six major cities, where nearly 13% of total population and 55 to 60% of total urban population are living. Management of this steeply increasing vast quantities of solid wastes is a very complex process indeed.

STRATEGIES AND TOOLS TO ESTABLISH AN INTEGRATED WASTE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN THE FAST GROWING URBAN CENTER ILOILO CITY, PANAY, PHILIPPINES
© IWWG International Waste Working Group (10/2007)
Iloilo City is the center of the second largest urban region in the Visayas, an island group forming the central part of the Phillipines, the hub of the newly established Metro Iloilo- Guimaras Economic Development Council (MIGEDC). It is located southeast of Panay Island with a population of 366,000. However, during daytime, the actual population of the city alone reaches half a million, when visitors use or incoming employees work in regional institutions such as universities, hospitals, banks, airport, seaport, and commercial centers which offer special services. Together with its other neighboring MIGEDC municipalities the urban region totals to about 806,549 in population and may become another Mega-Center with a total land area of 988.67 sq.km..

AUTOMATIC REPORTING BASED ON A CENTRAL DATA BASE IN NORTH RHINEWESTPHALIA/GERMANY – FIRST STEP: THE DIGITAL WASTE DISPOSAL ATLAS
© IWWG International Waste Working Group (10/2007)
Automatic reporting could be regarded as an ultimate and very ambitious step on a long way of data processing. The North Rhine-Westphalian State Agency for Nature, Environment and Consumer Protection completed this final step for their waste management data.
