What is Waste Management?
Waste management involves all aspects of waste control, reduction, and promoting sustainability. According to Sciencedaily, Waste management is the collection, transport, processing or disposal of waste materials, usually ones produced by human activity, in an effort to reduce their effect on human health or local aesthetics or amenity. In a nutshell, waste management ensures that we don’t deplete our natural resources, damage our Earth, and be able to give our future generations a beautiful place to live.

Benefits of Waste Management
Waste management bears a number of good benefits to both our health, cities and the environment. Let’s look at these benefits in detail.
Managing waste helps make for a better environment. When we recycle or reuse materials, we avoid having to use natural resources and running them to the ground. One paper recycled saves up to 14 trees. Recycling glass means less mining, limestone and more conservation of natural resources.
Making our everyday products such as paper, glass, cardboard etc causes a lot of air and water pollution. The machinery needed to cut down the streets produces a lot of fumes that deep into the atmosphere. On top of that, less trees due to deforestation means more air pollution because trees are one of the best carbon dioxide natural absorbers we have. They also help us breath clean oxygen. Recycling ensures that we keep our old trees standing instead of cutting them down to make new materials. Food waste is also a major contributor to the harmful gases choking our atmosphere. When food waste is left in the open to decompose, a very harmful gas called methane is released. This gas is twice as bad as carbon dioxide.
Recycling is one of the best ways that has helped us save energy through waste management. Creating these materials from scratch consumes a great deal of energy. However, recycling not only takes a lot less energy but also helps us create more such as electricity and biofuel. These usually come from food and glass recycling.

Various Methods of Waste Disposal
Now we are going to talk about the various methods of waste disposal such as recycling,the most sustainable method, landfills, and reusing.
Recycling is a method of remaking old and used materials into new materials. Old and discarded waste turns into new and reusable materials. Food is recycled into biofuel and gas, paper is recycled to new paper materials and cardboard.
Though this is not a very sustainable waste disposal method, it is still a widely used waste disposal method. Landfills are specially treated lands that are licensed to carry waste that cannot be recycled. However, waste that ends up in landfills needs to be treated first to remove it of any toxins that may seep into the soil and pollute our drinking water supplies and plants.
Most items that end up as waste could have been reused as something else. If the original owner has absolutely no use for them, then someone else in need might. You can donate to charity or giveaway to people on the streets or friends and family.
There are various ways that help us ensure proper waste management. If you need help managing yours, give us a call today. We are here for you.
