dc.description<p>Recycling and composting are waste management options, which should be considered as part of an overall waste management solution. However, during the early stages of an emergency these are unlikely to be appropriate and emphasis will on removing waste from areas where people are highly concentrated to avoid potential health and safety problems. After the immediate emergency period is over, an integrated and more sustainable approach to waste management should be considered. This is likely to include options for recycling and composting, which also has the benefit of creating livelihood opportunities for those affected by the emergency situation. This Technical Brief looks at what can be recycled and composted, and how to go about it.</p>en_US
