The last section, Waste management for corporations, contains a brief overview on the process of crafting a waste management plan, broken down into various steps. Additionally, the necessity of such systems for modern firms is argued.
The GarbageX – design tool is also available to registered users. This tool is designed to aid in the planning of waste management systems for estates, whether those used by the industry or by domestic home owners.
This webpage and the GarbageX –programme have been designed in co-operation between Lahti University of Applied Sciences, The Environmental School of Finland (SYKLI) and several companies working in the environmental –and waste management sector.
