Are more landfills our only option?

We live in a generation where an increasing mass of individuals are daily encouraged to buy more and more material products which in turn leads to an exponential amount of waste. Population growth has also put pressure on identifying and setting aside land for disposal of the waste we create. Are more landfills really our only option?

It is now well recognised that widespread behavioural change needs to be achieved to alter how society generates, handles and disposes of waste. As with any problem the first step in identifying sound initiatives to limit what ends up in landfills is having a reliable set of data to strategise from, and then monitor progress off.

Managing waste data effectively has immense potential for improving waste management, but how do you ensure the waste data you collect is valuable, and not “rubbish”? This FINNZ whitepaper examines the question.
