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. The focus of this document is landfills, a commonly practiced waste disposal method that involves the placement of hazardous wastes into the ground for long-term storage. It will be a useful resource for countries that are building their capacity to manage waste in an environmentally sound and efficient way.
