Abstract

From an environmental protection perspective, the crucial issues pertaining to the policing of hazardous waste relate to both the vulnerabilities and limitations of current practices, and the potential issues that demand attention in the here and now, to alleviate future calamity. This paper describes the process involved in developing a vulnerabilities and limitations checklist that provides a relatively simple yet multi-pronged approach to assessing present and future environmental harms and crimes within the hazardous waste sector. Although it was not the intention of the authors to develop a generic checklist, this tool may prove useful to other industry sectors.
