Proximity principle

The proximity principle advocates that waste should be disposed of (or otherwise managed) close to the point at which it is generated, thus aiming to achieve responsible self-sufficiency at a regional/or sub regional level. Where this is not possible priority should be given to transportation by rail or water[1].
