Press Release: ISWA's Message on Earth Day 2017
Tomorrow, 22 April 2017, is Earth Day and ISWA's message looks at the impacts of poor waste management on climate change.
How we manage our waste, or fail to, is of significant consequence. Many developing countries rely on dumpsites for receiving waste and the impact this has on our coastal areas and wider environment is huge and will only worsen if nothing changes.
Closing the world's largest dumpsites must be a priority and any collective effort to reduce the global temperature must take them into account.
