Waste Management Standards
ASTM's waste management standards provide the guides, practices, and test methods pertinent to the process of handling residential, commercial, and industrial wastes. This process involves the collection, transport, processing, and recycling or disposal (whichever is applicable) of waste materials for health, environmental, and/or aesthetic purposes. These waste management standards are indispensable to local government authorities, who are responsible for residential and metropolitan wastes, and industrial plants and laboratories, who are responsible for the wastes they generate.
