This paper presents a combined approach for waste management. A conceptfor the design of a new generation of waste repositories, the RECYCLING LANDFILL, is developed based on the application of biochemical processes to transform waste materials to a useful product. After a period of 20 to 30 years the waste will be modified into the desired final product. The concept of EQUISTORT is based on an integrated approach in which inorganic wastes are conditioned to bring the disposal site in a state of quasi- or semi-equilibrium at minimum leachability level of contaminants. A combined approach is proposed that would use both concepts to treat solid wastes. In this paper we outline the advantages which would arise from such an approach. 5 figs., 1 tab., 3 refs.
