Waste removal is an integral part of conserving the environment around us. It can be defined as actions that are taken to take care of trash from its collection until it is disposed off as GD and SON demonstrate in their video “A WASTE REMOVAL SUNDAY. GETTING WORK DONE.” It can also include legal or regulatory conditions that have been set to handle issues related to waste management.
The main goal of waste management is to reduce the negatory effects that poor waste removal has on the environment as well as human beings. Waste management seeks to find ways in which materials that are thrown away can be recycled or reused. This involves finding ingenious ways that can transform these materials and make them a usable commodity once again.
Some of the fundamentals of waste management include:
1. Hierarchy Of Waste
This represents the order of preferences for the type of actions taken to reduce or manage trash. It is more commonly identified as the 3 R’s: Reuse, Reduce, Recycle.
2. A product life cycle
A product’s life cycle usually starts with its design. After that it goes through manufacturing, distribution, and usage before finally going through the hierarchy of waste stages mentioned above: Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, and then disposal.
Waste removal is important because it enables us to play a part in the issue concerning climate change and the general well-being of the environment around us.
