  • Waste and resource : household management of solid waste on the north coast of Honduras
  • Environmental management ; Honduras ; Nuisance ; Toxic waste ; Waste ; Waste treatment
  • Many communities in Honduras do not have organized public solid waste collection and disposal services. This study addressed waste management in two Garífuna communities on the north coast. Their people use a variety of management and disposal
  • strategies. The different pathways for the solid waste depend on the nature of the refuse (harmless, dangerous, or reusable) and which environment is deemed appropriate. A. found household-level waste management practices to be logical and effective. - (SLD)
  • Land treatment and disposal of effluent. A New Zealand perspective
  • Irrigation is becoming an accepted means of effluent treatment and disposal in New Zealand. This paper outlines major sources of effluent in New Zealand and the methods, benefits and problems of land waste treatment prior to a brief discussion
  • of disease control and the future of this form of treatment.
  • The influences of a waste water treatment plant on the macro-invertebrate communities of a lowland river in the Campine (Belgium)
  • The combined effects of purified and unpurified sewage on the macro-invertebrates of the Witte Nete, a Campine lowland river, have been studied. In ten localities, eight of which were downstream a waste water treatment plant, the benthic fauna
  • Structural constraints and pluralist contradictions in hazardous waste regulation
  • Environmental management ; Legislation ; Location ; Location choice ; Nuisance ; Regulation theory ; State control ; Toxic waste ; United States ; Waste treatment
  • The AA. assert that the basic assumptions of hazardous waste regulation define the problem as a locational problem confronting the state, rather than an investment problem for the capital. Local opposition to facility siting is explained in terms
  • Economic instruments and waste minimization: the need for discard-relevant and purchase-relevant instruments
  • Economic cost ; Economic strategy ; Legislation ; Nuisance ; Pollution control ; Recycling ; United Kingdom ; Waste treatment
  • It is argued that a mix of instruments will increase the ability of a waste-minimization programme to achieve high waste-reduction targets without imposing excessive cost on the economy. The exact mix will depend on the elements included

  • of America ; Waste treatment
  • Status of municipal waste disposal in some developed countries is discussed in the paper. The waste is classified according to sites of its origin. The methods of waste treatment are elaborated, and special attention is payed to the fact
  • that besides running techniques of waste incineration, recycling and composting, landfilling is the prevailing type of waste disposal practiced in concerning countries.
  • Thinking waste and matter : from end-of-pipe to materialising economy. Theme issue
  • Governance ; Local government unit ; Location choice ; Management ; Society ; United Kingdom ; Waste ; Waste treatment
  • Collectively, the four papers gathered here show not just that materiality matters to the development of waste scholarship but that a focus on industrial waste matters to the development of work on materiality. Ranging across diverse geographically
  • imaginations, they show too how the geographies of waste scholarship might move beyond their traditional locus of the municipality, the region and the nation-state.
  • Conflict ; Italy ; Management ; Policy ; Sustainable development ; Waste ; Waste treatment
  • Refusing the waste, parting from it, is what makes culture possible. The distinction between what is rubbish and the rest of things is the core of that imperceptible struggle between life and death, which sets value to things. This defining process
  • , which includes the ways in which waste is managed, generates local conflicts which attempt to redefine the values determined by the treadmill of production. In recent years conflicts appear to have increased in number and intensity. Sustainability

  • Trial and error in privatisation : experiences in urban solid waste collection in Accra (Ghana) and Hyderabad (India)
  • Economic efficiency ; Hyderabad ; Impact ; Privatisation ; Service ; Third World ; Town ; Urban environment ; Waste treatment ; Working conditions
  • The socioeconomic performance of private modes of solid waste collection are contrasted with that of public modes of service delivery. Although the forms of privatisation are quite distinct, there are number of striking similarities in outcome
  • Complex mass wasting response of drainage basins to forest management in coastal British Columbia
  • British Columbia ; Canada ; Coastal environment ; Environmental management ; Forest ; Mass movement ; Mudflow ; Slope gradient ; Soil erosion ; Stand treatment ; Watershed
  • The impacts of logging activities on mass wasting were examined in 5 watersheds in the coastal mountains of British Columbia. Historical aerial photos were used to document mass wasting events, and their occurrence was related to logging activities
  • in the study basins. Logged and forested areas were compared in terms of mass wasting magnitude and frequency, with reference to site characteristics. The recovery time of the landscape after logging was assessed. Mass wasting failure was primarily controlled

  • Political ecologies of electronic waste : uncertainty and legitimacy in the governance of e-waste geographies
  • Applied ecology ; Applied geography ; Electronic waste ; Environmental justice ; Governance ; Legislation ; Political ecology ; Recycling ; United States of America ; Waste treatment
  • This article examines political ecologies of electronic waste through uncertainty and legitimacy in the governance of e-waste geographies in the United States. First, it highlights the ambiguities and democratic deficits that emerge from promoting
  • global environmental justice politics through market-driven disposal choices. Second, it analyzes the practices of representation through which NGOs and institutions produce e-waste as an object of regulation/commodification that is amenable to consumer
  • action. It concludes that, given the complexity of global commodity-networks like those for used electronics, these governing narratives rely on abstractions that oversimplify and rework the fetish of what e-waste is, where it goes, and how it should
  • Wind erosion of residue waste. Part I. Using the wind profile to characterise wind erosion
  • A portable wind tunnel is used to assess the erodibility of prepared surfaces of residue waste. The data are extensive and include wind profiles, collections of saltation and suspension material as well as particle sizing by elutriation. Still
  • , the data show no definitive information on the effects of treatment. There are difficulties in the use of the gradient of the log profile and the intercept as measures of the shear stress and the scale.

  • Baja California ; Factory ; Mexico ; Sustainable development ; Technology ; Waste ; Water ; Water quality ; Water resources
  • This article compares two sustainable wastewater treatment technologies used in Tijuana to better understand their contributions to the city’s attempts to increase economic, social, and environmental sustainability. A sustainable indicator analysis
  • the capacity and treatment standards of the large-scale, centralized plant to meet the current and future needs of Tijuana. However, it argues that if the final water quality produced by smaller-scale, alternative technologies can be improved, these types
  • of facilities have the potential to augment larger-scale treatment plants and provide important, localized sustainability benefits in a transborder context.
