On August 1, 2010, in Waste Management, by Sushant

Collecting the rubbish& dumping it in the landfill is not the only step to waste management. There are other effective steps for waste management that helps the company to function effectively in managing the waste which in turn works best towards preserving the environment. Six effective steps for the waste management are:

(1)   Monitoring: Monitoring means understanding the need for waste management, identifying how can the materials be used again by recycling it, & thus reducing the amount of waste production, thus getting an idea as to how much progress has been done in waste reduction. Keeping a check on different streams that produces waste, we can work in peace with the environment.

(2)   Collection: Collection involves systematic organization that sees to it that the bins to collect the waste are not over flooded and the time allotted for the waste collection is not too long. In this step it is seen that the bin size to collect the waste is correct, frequency of the service given must be regular to prevent over spill or stinginess. Different kinds of waste should have different bins with the stickers and different bin color for the identification. For example wet garbage should have a green color bin and dry waste bin with a different color. Locks, chains, and lids are given by local bodies so that no one can dislocate the bins &also to prevent mixing to different kinds of garbage by the people who have no knowledge about it.

(3)   Cooperation between waste management company and the customer is crucial. The bins should to ready to discard the waste at the given time, so truck drivers don’t have to waste their time. Bins with the wheel would be convenient for the customer to move the bins to the serviceable area, sometimes work has to be done in non working hours. This could lead to problems to truck drivers &sometimes the public. So problems should be discussed &notice could be given. .

(4)   Transportation: this step involves making available the waste transport vehicle from the areas from where it has been collected to the land fill or the place where they can recycled. Special vehicle must be designed for waste transportation. Drivers should be trained for transportation of the hazardous waste.

(5)   Processing & Recycling: From the waste, the products that can be recycled are taken separately, they are then processed. The processed materials are raw materials for the production of new materials these materials required for cyclable products are purchased by the companies that sustain the environment and natural resources for production.

(6)   Disposal: Non recyclable wastes are dumped into a vast abandoned land. This is called landfills. Only care should be taken that toxic waste does not enter the soil and water system. The people in charge of landfill department must supervise & approve the dumping site. Care should be taken about depth allowed till dumping, the nature of the waste dumped, etc must  be approved

Thus waste management is the detailed process involving proper transportation,    trained government workers got from the nature.
