The Journal of Solid Waste Technology and Management publishes full length papers that provide significant contributions to the field of solid waste technology and management. All papers are peer reviewed. To submit a paper for possible publication, please comply with the following requirements:




The manuscript (in English) should be sent as an email attachment to:

Submitting the manuscript is a representation that it has not been copyrighted or published, and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere.
