Sustainable solid waste management needs to be environmentally effective, to reduce overall environmental burdens, economically affordable for all sectors of the community served and socially acceptable Integrated Waste Management (IWM) takes an overall approach to this, involves the use of a range of different treatment options and deals with the entire waste stream. Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) can successfully be applied to assess the environmental burdens associated with IWM systems. The technique is now past the theoretical tool stage and it is important to look at the practical experience to date and identify how the tool has been used, what it contributes, where it is particularly helpful and, just as importantly, where it is not helpful.
