Waste Management and Disposal

Waste Management

Any material that is not of any value to its owner and which the owner does not want to dispose of can be considered “waste”. It can be made from various sources, including residential, industrial, commercial, medical, and other types.

To protect the environment, human health and planet resources, it is important to manage waste (solid, liquid, and gaseous). Proper waste management can also reduce negative effects on society like pollution, health problems, social disadvantages, and other problems.
