|Abstract: ||The process of waste minimisation through ‘designing out waste’ is in its infancy. Many barriers and
opportunities exist in developing waste minimisation strategies in design. The paper will summarise the
initial findings of the authors’ recent research. It is intended to stimulate thought into the concept of
designing out waste. By outlining the causative factors of waste through design and the principle strategies
for waste reduction, the paper highlights the present status of this important subject and question whether
adequate emphasis is being put on the initial stages of the waste hierarchy – reduce, reuse, recycle.
The paper introduces the various options for waste minimisation in design, including designing for
recycling, extended life, disassembly and designing out waste. It concludes by highlighting the links between
‘designing out waste’ and the future waste management and recycling industries, indicating where
opportunities may exist.|
