SQL Server 2008 combining a query.

Frirst: A bit of background...

I have two tables related one to many with a third as a resolving table :

WasteTyperesolve (resolving table)

They look like this:

Id      Description
1      Cardboard
2      Paper
3      Cans
4      General

Id      Description
1      Cardboard
2      Paper

Id      ParentId      ChildId
1      4       1
2      4      2

The following query combines the two tables, ignoring any WasteType records that have WasteSubtypes:

SELECT [Description] FROM [WasteType]
WHERE [WasteTypeId] NOT IN (SELECT [WasteTypeId] FROM [WasteSubTypeResolve])
UNION SELECT [Description] FROM [WasteSubType] ORDER BY [Description]

It would produce:


The question...

I need to combine this query with another one.

The second query is

SELECT Id,Description FROM Site

and returns:
Id      SiteDesc
1      London
2      Brighton
3      Manchester

I need to combine these queries to show the following:

Id      SiteDesc      WasteStreamDesc
1      London      Cardboard
1      London      Paper
1      London      Cans
2      Brighton      Cardboard
2      Brighton      Paper
2      Brighton      Cans
3      Manchester      Cardboard
3      Manchester      Paper
3      Manchester      Cans

I did post a similar question earlier in the day about combining the results of two tables but that was BEFORE I was informed hat the first query was a little more complicated that I had originally been led to believe.

how's this?
SELECT S.ID, S.Description, W.[Description]  FROM [WasteType] W, Site S
WHERE [WasteTypeId] NOT IN (SELECT [WasteTypeId] FROM [WasteSubTypeResolve])
UNION SELECT S.ID, S.Description, W.[Description] FROM [WasteSubType]W, Site S ORDER BY W.[Description]
