ISWA: 2nd Beacon Conference on Waste Prevention & Recycling

Waste management has to evolve from a situation where we are finding proper solutions for our waste into a situation where we are managing our resources. Waste prevention and recycling are the key components of the new European waste hierarchy and therefore the core of modern waste management.

In the past waste management has been focusing on realizing proper collection and treatment facilities like controlled landfilling and incineration. In many cases this is still the primary focus of waste management. In the long run, given the growth of the world’s population, the increased consumption, and the declining availability of our natural resources (metals and minerals), waste prevention and recycling are essential.

The ISWA Beacon Conference on Waste Prevention and Recycling which will take place on 23 and 24 May 2011 in Vienna/Austria has the aim to provide information and expertise on the current developments regarding prevention and recycling, and to bring experts together from all over the world to exchange knowledge and experience and to enable them to establish new contacts in their network.
