Integrated Waste Management Services

Integrated Waste Management allows for the optimisation of waste management by maximising efficiency and minimising the associated environmental, social and economic impacts of waste. Furthermore, it allows for the defining of targets, activities, tasks, responsibilities, timing, control procedures and the results or outputs expected, so as to optimise the management of waste.

SEF is committed to ensuring that all Integrated Waste Management principles and all relevant legislative requirements are achieved.

  • Waste Management License (WML) Applications
  • Integrated Waste Management Plans (IWMPs)
  • Integrated Waste and Water Management Plans (IWWMPs)
  • Site selection processes based largely on environmental and social impacts
  • Site Closure processes
  • Assessing the application of wastes including non-hazardous process wastes (residue and sludge management)
  • Conducting studies on soil stability, moisture retention or drainage, sustainability, and assessing the impact of environmental hazards, including hazardous waste sites that involve soil investigation techniques.

Waste management usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and is generally carried out to reduce its effect on health, the environment or aesthetics. Waste management, which can involve solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive substances, requires different methods and fields of expertise for each sector.

The Waste Management Hierarchy dictates that waste should first be reduced, and then reused, recycled, recovered (energy from waste), and final disposed.

SEF advises clients on responding to the Kyoto Protocol by identifying Clean Development Mechanism projects, such as methane extraction from landfill sites. Waste management practices differ for developed and developing nations, for urban and rural areas, and for residential and industrial producers.
