About the product

The fundamental aims of the Basel Convention are the reduction of the transboundary movements of hazardous wastes and environmentally sound management of such wastes. This document focuses on the recovery operations, which include all steps involved in recovering useable components of wastes. It will be a useful resource for countries that are building their capacity to manage waste in an environmentally sound and efficient way.
