Waste Management

Waste management refers to the activities and processes involved in collecting, handling, processing, storing, and transporting waste materials from their point of generation to their final disposal location. Waste management encompasses a range of activities, including waste reduction, recycling, and disposal, which are essential for preserving the environment and public health. Waste can take many forms, including municipal solid waste, hazardous waste, industrial waste, and biomedical waste. The management of waste involves several stages, including the segregation of waste into different categories, collection, transportation to processing or disposal facilities, and final disposal. The ultimate goal of waste management is to reduce the amount of waste produced, minimize the environmental impact of waste, and ensure public safety through the proper handling and disposal of waste materials. Proper waste management practices are critical for maintaining a healthy and sustainable environment.
