I have begun to clean up this article which requires some careful analysis and wikification although I do not have time to complete at this stage. I have also added a picture of the waste hierarchy diagram. --Alex 08:46, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

the waste hierarchy diagram is copyrighted and it was listed for deletion. So I redrew it thinking that solving the mechanical copyright would be enough, but no it has been listed for deletion again. You can chip at Wikipedia:Possibly_unfree_images#August_17 How can I draw a waste pyramid and not make it like the original? They may make me change the colours, what colour scheme do you think it should be? - Drstuey 12:27, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Waste minimisation vs. waste reduction[edit]

An expert needs to explain the difference between waste minimization and waste reduction. The second sentence says that waste minimisation "is part of the wider aim of waste reduction". This sounds silly, since the reduction of something is a weaker aim than minimisation. What's more, the article later talks mostly about waste reduction, and not minimisation. -Pgan002 22:10, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Handling of waste is not waste minimisation?[edit]

"Home composting ... can be considered waste minimisation. But other procedures that require the handling of waste, such as waste collected for recycling, while reducing the pressure on disposal facilities, do not reduce the amount of waste generated."

Why? Pgan002 00:10, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

I second this. Nonesense!--Alex 10:17, 21 February 2007 (UTC)


I have done some cleanup on this article, but I think that there is more to improve on. Zharradan.angelfire 07:28, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

The following sentence was rather an instruction than factual information. See What Wikipedia is not "One way to participate in precycling is to carry a "precycling kit" with you when you are out. Include a Tupperware or non-diposable container, silverware set, a cloth napkin or handkerchief and a thermos or water-bottle within a cloth bag that can double as a grocery/shopping bag." I have tried to change it, but don't know if this is actually the case, or whether this is just something that someone just made up.Jimjamjak (talk) 09:36, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Environmental technology template

I'd like to replace the Environmental technology template with one that matches the standard navbox style, i.e. horizontal instead of vertical, collapsing and typically placed at the bottom of article pages. I've done a mock up of what this would look like at {{User:Jwanders/ET}}. Figured this was a big enough change that I should post before going ahead with it. Please discuss here--jwandersTalk 22:03, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

PullApart, inclusion:[edit]

Hello folks
I would like to bring my article to this page, (talk), does anybody here have any objections? Also, as I'm a learning newbie, perhaps, you might kindly read over my article and suggest ways in which it can be made suitable/compatible here, many thanks. —Preceding undated comment was added at 17:38, 7 February 2009 (UTC).

Minimization vs Minimisation[edit]

A style should be picked for the spelling, and it should be maintained for the entire article. As is, it differs between the article title and the first sentence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:50, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
