Waste can be defined in many ways as is evident from the differing definitions adopted in the White Paper, the strategy and the Waste Act. The exact definition of waste is, however, the topic of an ongoing debate because of an increasing global trend to reduce, re-use, rework, recycle, recover, so-called ‘waste products’. One person’s waste can now become another person’s valuable raw material. Also, with changing technologies, availability and cost of original input materials, the demand for, or need to use recovered ‘wastes’ is changing too.
