Hazardous Household Chemicals and Hazardous Waste: Policy and Procedures Recommendations for Implementation in Israel

In 2012 we chose the issue of hazardous household chemicals and hazardous waste management as a national priority in the environmental field, as chemicals and wastes are not properly handled institutionally or systemically in Israel.

Dr. Debby Mir wrote a document summarizing the global knowledge and activities currently available in developed countries and provided recommendations for implementation in Israel. The paper exposes the environmental and health hazards associated with the acquisition, use and disposal of hazardous household chemicals and household waste. The background document was distributed to participants who attended an expert's workshop held at the Samuel Neaman Institute.

The document was published as a National Priorities Report for 2012.
