Summary The management of the ice cream factory concerned in this study strongly felt the importance of undertaking a waste audit of its biggest waste generator, the ice cream plant. Ice cream wastewater constitutes as much as 74% of the total volume of wastewater discharged by the company to the central treatment plant of the Industrial Estate in which the factory is situated. Generation of ice cream wastes is attributed to the high consumptive use of water in the plant for washing and cleaning operations. As a result of waste auditing, methods were proposed to save water and to segregate the waste, and to modify the existing wastewater treatment system of the ice cream plant for better treatment efficiency.
