Waste Management and Landfill

What should we do with the waste we generate? What is the potential for recycling materials during a building redevelopment or demolition? Should materials be sent to landfills or to energy-from-waste (EfW) facilities? How can we implement a program where food waste and other biodegradable waste can be converted into renewable energy? Can a city’s waste management system handle the growing stream of electronic waste?
