Abstract Governments in both Australia and the United States have implemented frameworks for regulating hazardous industrial wastes and allocating responsibility for the remediation of contaminated sites. The indirect effect that these regulatory programmes have had on stimulating attention to waste minimisation is being complemented by recent Government initiatives aimed directly at encouraging the adoption of waste minimisation techniques by industrial firms. This article reviews these Government initiatives, assesses impediments to further adoption of waste-minimisation techniques and identifies opportunities for fostenng an enlightened preference for waste minimisation as a primary waste management strategy by industrial managers.
