Chapter 6: Waste management
The Waste management chapter focuses on practices to ensure waste products are avoided, minimised, reduced, reused or recycled wherever feasible, or are disposed in a manner in line with community expectations and legislation.
This section does not address water or chemical waste. For more information on these topics see 2b – Water quality, 3 – Chemical management, and 4b – Nutrient application.
Note that within each chapter the guidelines provide information and guidance on the following:
- the priority environmental management issues of concern;
- how a business can assess the associated environmental risks;
- practices that are recommended for addressing the identified risks; and
- suggestions for monitoring and recording to demonstrate that environmental management outcomes are being met.
