When you think of waste management, you will probably think that it is all about collecting your waste and then dumping it on a landfill. However, there is much more involved and although garbage removal is an important aspect, you also need to tackle a few other things. There are various steps that need to be done, including monitoring and collection, as well as transport, treatment and disposal or recycling of the waste.
Monitoring is an important part of waste management. It involves both identifying the need for proper waste management and recycling it, as well as minimizing waste management. When monitoring the waste, you should also review the process to see how good waste can be minimized. You must also keep a record of the various waste streams.
The collection phase involves ensuring that trash cans are not overfilled and that the garbage will not be allowed to accumulate and sit for too long. You also need to know the correct size of the container and how often to fill it. This prevents overflow as well as excess stink.
It is also important for the customer to develop a good relationship with the waste management company. The truck driver must have clear access to trash cans at predetermined times.
Waste transportation is another important part of waste management. The company that handles the disposal of your waste must be authorized to transport specific waste from the customer’s residence to a landfill or to a processing plant. A suitable vehicle must be used to transport garbage. In addition, vehicles and drivers as well as companies must have licenses and approval to transport the unwanted material.
Once the unwanted material has been transported, it must be processed. At this point, the waste management company must separate the reusable items for further processing, and when the treatment is completed, the unwanted material must then be packaged and sent to factories for production.
Disposing or recycling the non-recyclable material for landfill is another part of the waste management process. The material must be disposed of at authorized disposal sites. The undesirable material must also be buried at an appropriate depth to ensure that hazardous chemicals are not able to enter the soil or water tables, nor should they enter the water system, air and piping systems.
