What Is Waste Management
Every human activity results in the generation of a substantial amount of waste in either solid, liquid, or gaseous form. Unplanned urbanization and industrialization have added to the amount of solid waste, biomedical waste, and also hazardous waste which has impacted the environment quite heavily. The amount of waste that is being generated is increasing on a daily basis, and also the complexity of the waste that is generated changes consistently, making its disposal a big problem for all countries.
Reducing the quantity of waste that is generated and effectively disposing of this waste after proper segregation and treatment is termed as waste management. Waste can either be solid waste that is generated from residential, industrial, commercial, and other agricultural sources, biomedical waste that is generated from hospitals, or even hazardous waste that is generated from reactors. Waste management involves proper segregation of all types of wastes and their different methods of treatment and disposal. Waste management as an industry is quite new and is still growing because of the enormous effect that it has on the environment and human health on a global scale.
