Legal Frame Work
It is important to have a legislative framework that defines the collection, transportation, recovery and disposal of waste in order to build a sustainable integrated waste management ecosystem. These kind of legislations and directives ensure waste is recovered or disposed without endangering human health or the environment and permits, registration and regular inspections ensure that all adhere to the requirements. These legislations also ensure that appropriate steps are to be taken to prevent or reduce waste production, secondly recover waste by means of recycling or use waste as a source of energy.
