Abstract This guide presents advice on the design of sorting centres for domestic waste. It covers both the design of new centres and the modification of existing ones and complements general guidance on the design of work facilities. It underscores the importance of the participation of local authorities, facilities owners, designers, safety and health coordinators and users in the general approach to the prevention of occupational hazards, early in the design process.
