10. HILUCS Topic: Dump site and recycling facility

Situation: A facility that functions as a dump site has a different impact on the environment than a facility where re-usable substances and materials are recycled.

Proposal: Make a difference under 4_3_3_WasteTreatment between 4_3_3_1_DumpSite and 4_3_3_2_RecyclingFacility.



This class includes the areas used for the collection, treatment and recycling of waste (dumpsites, waste incineration, composting, hazardous waste treatment and recycling facilities).

4_3_3_1_DumpSites [EAGLE proposal]

This class applies for areas used for the collection and deposit of waste.
(EAGLE proposal, not yet in HILUCS)

4_3_3_2_RecyclingFacility [EAGLE proposal]

This class includes the areas used for the recycling of waste or used material that is prepared to be re-introduced to a product life cycle. This material for example can be paper, all kinds of plastic packaging and plastic bottles, glasses, but also biomass or biological waste turned into humus.
