Putting value into waste data - Idea #1

Mar 31, 2016

Idea 1: Create a single waste data framework

This gives clarity to all involved in the reporting process. A comprehensive and integrated framework allows data to be provided in a manner which easily allows comparison. However, the nature of waste materials can provide challenges to this, for example:

  • How are volumetric or weight based measures aligned?
  • How do you ensure the classification of materials is consistent?
  • The ability to roll waste classes up.
  • Measures can go beyond physical measurements to also include handling and treatment.
  • Not all processes are consistent across the handling and treatment for industry organisations e.g. How stockpiles are managed.
