In order to promote and implement a sustainable waste management in Israel there is a need to develop tools for common knowledge and language for all stakeholders.

Therefore, this project includes:

  • Coordinating an operational team comprised of professionals and interested parties from the various related sectors.
  • Evaluation of the various technological options according to cost/benefit and sustainability models
  • Examination of relevant issues for mixed waste management, including technologies, necessary legislation, responsibilities of the different entities, public involvement and means for conflict resolution, and sustainability principles as a basis for evaluating the compatibility of alternative technologies for application.
  • Defining strategies to encourage higher levels of involvement and commitment of the environmental organizations, the government and academia, for a system-wide approach to waste management (including an appropriate landfill tax, government investment and resolution of conflicts associated with public objection).
  • Creating the infrastructure for a public lobby to encourage sustainable waste management.
