Bringing Environment Back to Waste Management: a Case Study of Waste Policy in Finnish Lapland.

Aktiviteetti: EsitelmäKonferenssiesitelmä


During the last 20 years Finnish waste legislation has been constantly modified in order to meet European Union’s agenda to become a waste-free recycle society. The completely renewed waste legislation came into operation at the beginning of 2016. The new waste policy is based on the idea of “circular economy” in which waste is understood as by-products waiting to be economically utilized. As a result, waste has rapidly turned from something that there is too much into something that there is not enough. In short, waste has turned into a resource.
