18.3  Main components of waste management

In any waste management process, there is a stage when waste will be temporarily stored or contained onsite (i.e. in the place where the waste is produced). This may be temporary or be a final disposal site. If storage is temporary, then subsequent stages will be the transfer or transport to a treatment facility or technology, followed by final disposal offsite (i.e. away from the waste generation site).
