Waste Guide

There are numerous textbooks and reference manuals on waste management, but most have an industry focus and few are ‘step by step’ or ‘how to do it’ guides. In recognition of this, EAUC published “A Practical Waste Management Guide for Universities and Colleges” in 2001. However many detailed changes to the legislation have occurred since and the Association successfully bid to Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE) for support for a major revision – to be accessed via the web.

This new on-line Waste Management Guide has built on this achievement. Information has been updated, new case studies added and numerous links to other sources of information and guidance greatly enhance the value and usefulness of the guide. Interactive links between sections increase the accessibility of the “how-to-do-it” advice and help to ensure that important legislation is at hand through any waste management process. There are downloadable templates, which can be used or adapted to assist with managing waste streams.
