ISWA Publication Award 2017: The Winners

The ISWA Publication Award has been created with the intention of honouring the author(s) of a publication, article or book which is deemed to be exceptional in its contribution to the field of solid waste management. Each year, ISWA's panel of expert judges recognise the publication which they feel offers the most valuable contribution to the promotion of sustainable waste management.
