Waste Management

What is waste management?

Waste management or waste disposal is all the activities and actions required to manage waste from its inception to its final disposal. This includes amongst other things collection, transport, treatment and disposal of waste together with monitoring and regulation. It also encompasses the legal and regulatory framework that relates to waste management encompassing guidance on recycling.

The term normally relates to all kind of waste, whether generated during the extraction of raw materials, the processing of raw materials into intermediate and final products, the consumption of final products, or human activities including, municipal (residential, institutional, commercial), agricultural and social (health care, household hazardous waste, sewage sludge). Waste management is intended to reduce adverse effects of waste on health, the environment or aesthetics.

The importance of waste management:

The most important reason for waste collection is the protection of the environment and the health of the population.

Rubbish and waste can cause air and water pollution. Rotting garbage is also known to produce harmful gases that mix with the air and can cause breathing problems in people. By inspecting the vegetation around landfill sites carefully you can determine the damage that can be caused by garbage and waste if left untreated in the open. To address this problem modern waste management professionals place garbage in lined holes and use bacteria to help facilitate its rapid decomposition. Rotting garbage and waste emanates a foul smell that can cause nausea among people who come into contact with it. It can also be a source for waterborne diseases such as cholera and abdominal conditions and discomfort. Since water sources need to be protected the role of waste disposal companies is very important. These organisations should make it a priority to secure their landfill sites so that water bodies are not affected by the garbage and waste collected from homes and commercial establishments.

Waste management and recycling collection can help conserve our planet's natural beauty which can be flawed by thoughtless disposal of waste, fly-tipping and senseless littering. Landscapes can be ruined through littering and places of tourist interest can lose their attraction; it is also blight for those who live in areas where waste collection and recycling is not managed effectively and responsibly. Natural beauty is a legacy and a right for future generations and conserving it, as well as our natural resources, for their benefit is our responsibility today.

There are many challenges facing the waste management and recycling industry but there is also a lot of excellent work going on to ensure that this is an industry to be proud of and one that will continue to secure effective, sustainable and ecologically sound waste management and recycling for many years to come.
