Rethinking Solid Waste Management

Description: The magnitude and negative impacts of solid waste have become increasingly apparent, especially in regards to plastics and their presence in the oceans. As a result, there have been many approaches to rethinking what constitutes waste and how waste can be avoided, used, and/or managed in a more sustainable manner. This course explores these emerging approaches to waste management planning, and illustrates them with current examples of solid waste management (SWM) plans and initiatives from various countries around the globe.
