Waste management poses numerous problems and there is a significant need for more research on current disposal methods. Following the introduction of legislation in many countries the emphasis is now on sustainable strategies. While these decrease the volume of waste that needs final disposal, answers to issues such as environmental and safety aspects of certain recycled materials or by-products of waste management activities, current technology improvements, and regulatory and monitoring problems still need to be found.
