Abstract

Investigations were conducted in 1988/89 towards characterizing the sources, types, volumes, management and disposal of wastes produced by the metal finishing industry in W.A. These revealed that generally, metal finishing premises disposed of their wastes untreated or ineffectively treated and did not comply with discharge criteria applicable in W.A. In response to existing industry waste management problems and the likelihood that non-compliance would persist "Environmental Management Guidelines for Metal Finishers in W .A." have been prepared. The purpose of the guidelines is to provide a reference source that will aid both industry members and government authorities to manage metal finishing wastes in an environmentally acceptable manner.
