Abstract
This paper describes the two extreme positions on source reduction and places them in context in the debate on how to better manage waste. It uses case studies to illustrate that the polar positions are ideological and that such simplistic views lead to inaction. It argues for compromise positions and emphasizes that improved hazardous substances management will come about not through further debate but through implementing solutions on a case-by-case basis.
