We present an adaptation of an existing materials flow model to account for waste flows in the domestic environment. The revised approach offers added functionality for economic parameters that influence waste production and disposal. Hypothetical waste and resource management futures illustrate the utility of model. A sensitivity analysis confirms that imports, domestic extraction and their associated hidden flows impact mostly on wastes generation. The model offers enhanced utility for policy and decision makers with regard to economic mass balance and strategic waste flows
