Book: Sustainable Solid Waste Collection and Management

This book addresses the collection of waste and waste streams as a fundamental part of sustainable waste management. The authors go beyond the mere characterisation of waste collections technologies and collection route optimisation by taking into consideration both economic and behavioural studies. Authors present in detail models and tools for sustainable waste collection systems, and provide an extensive description on how to design waste collection systems allowing for the reduction of environmental impacts, their economic viability and the participation from target populations.
