Waste management is really an environment friendly job and any opportunity to work in the industry can be a great opportunity needs to be taken extremely seriously.
Typically there are three sides of waste management industry. Those are:
- waste collection
- waste processing in order to avoid it being a hazard or to send it soewhere else other than landfill, and
- owning and operating designed landfills .
Other existing techniques include: petrification, bailing, gasification and pyrolysis, just to mention a few.
From these methods just sanitary landfill, and waste prevention/ recycling are complete strategies where as other methods simply decrease the waste volume sent to landfill.
There are great deals of countries that have actually followed the strategies of sustainable waste management, however, some are still failing to do so. For example, in a city like Lagos the solid waste management is an important cause for concern the Nigerian government is taking all possible approach to use waste management techniques, but still they are not entirely successful. The major problem for Nigeria is the Nigerian communities who lack participation in strong waste management, and likewise are big waste generators. According to a survey in 2004 it was established that the mindset and ego of Nigerian neighborhoods effected to make their waste management system a failure.
The rate of strong waste is enhancing day by day and still many are oblivious that waste management recycling by plummeting the usage of fresh basic materials can really reduce greenhouse gas exhausts. By in this manner we can lower air contamination and water contamination. We need to understand the damage that can happen to our planet if we don’t take essential step in the correct time, if we keep our attitude and ego in front of environment than there will certainly soon come the time where no one can save us from the fatality of natural disasters.
If they are unable to take the correct waste management activity now than in future there we will certainly be responsible for leading issue developing due to worldwide warming as we will be going to contaminate to air and make the climate warmer. This will certainly result in worldwide warming and in the end will affect the glaciers increasing the sea level, and making the threat of flooding very real in all countries.
