What is Waste Management?
The word “waste management” refers to the actions and activities required to oversee waste from its inception to disposal. This involves storing, collecting, transporting, and disposing of waste while also monitoring and regulating the process. The ultimate goal of waste management is to minimize the harmful consequences of waste on the environment and human health.
Nonetheless, it appears that as a species, we are unable to agree on the optimum management approaches. The process of disposing of waste is not internationally uniform, and differences in regional legislation mean that different countries manage their waste in a variety of – and often extremely inventive – ways. Commercial waste can be disposed of using the waste hierarchy pyramid method as a guide.
At the top of the pyramid, these approaches are most desired primarily because they are environmentally friendly, but they are the least popular. Landfilling and incineration used to be the two most common methods for disposing of waste because they were often the cheapest and easiest to carry out in large quantities. However, they’re the least environmentally friendly methods and at Wakefield Waste, we tend to stay far away from them.
Commercial Waste Reduction Wakefield
When we say ‘reduce’ we mean to reduce waste creation first or from the source. Plastics originating with single-use are one example of this. Plastic straws began being banned in early 2019 following a push that started during that time. In addition to being unnecessary, straws are often made of non-recyclable plastic, making them not only dangerous but also unsustainable. The term “reuse” refers to finding new uses for domestic and commercial waste. Repurposing plastic bottles into ‘eco-bricks’ for non-load bearing walls, or repurposing glass food jars for flower pots or even drinking glasses, are two examples.
Commercial Waste Recycling Wakefield
Recycling is the process of transforming waste items into reusable materials that can be used to create either the original product or a new product using that waste material. For example, paper with notes on it can be recycled into new blank paper. Recycling differs from reusing in that recycling necessitates a mechanical process to produce something usable, whereas reusing is simply finding a new use for something rather than discarding it.
Recycling has the ability to prevent potentially usable items from ending up in landfills while also lowering the need for new raw materials in the first place. Additionally, it minimizes energy demand, air pollution (due to incineration), and water pollution (from landfill). As a result, recycling is undoubtedly the most popular and widely accepted waste management option. All recyclable materials include plastics, metals, textiles, cardboard, glass, paper, tires, electronics, and batteries. The materials are then sorted, cleaned, and reprocessed to create new materials of value before they are kept in specialised bins and transferred to manufacturing facilities.
