The author mentions a new branch of geography - the geography of secondary and second-rate raw materials. He demonstrates territorial interaction relations, between the occurrence and sources of the wastes and the waste producers, predominantly industrial plants. He outlines the tasks and aims of the new branch of the manufacture-geography in the space-quantification and qualification as regards the sources, the territorial differentiation, localization and inventarization with respect to the choice of their mutual relations, minimalization of transport and the requirements aimed at an explanation by means of thematic charts.
