Water pollution is an epidemic in China. Most of the pollution comes from companies that try to recycle the waste, but all they end up doing is more harm to the environment. China recycles everything from plastic to electronic parts. More cancer is popping up in villages due to the contaminated water. From the water they drink to the water they use to wash their clothes, all of it has harsh chemicals in it.
SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT The management of solid waste has proven to be a discouraging task for many towns and cities in developing countries. This is evidenced by the huge number of uncontrolled dumps, gutters choked with junk to a variety of degrees and the irregular collection of waste among many others. These has come a problem in financial, technical (this has to with the equipments used) and institutional. This affect the amount of solid waste collected and managed and how well the management practice meet standard methods. Waste management institutions in the country are faced with financial problems making it difficult for them to pay contractors and procure equipments for the collection and disposal of waste.
The urban waste management systems are already overburdened. The additional burden of mixing infections wastes creates the problem for health care workers, because the colour coding system is not followed properly. The storage of biomedical waste in a separate area and the proper hygiene is not maintained. Most of the hospitals do not adopt the biomedical waste system and in urban areas where common biomedical waste treatment facilities are available, most of the hospitals are yet to join this stream. Most of the incinerators are not properly operated and maintenance of the incinerator is also very poor.
Practical aspects of secondary waste collection system in the city are particularly problematic. Waste containers are inadequate, poorly maintained and supervised improperly. The DCC does not remove waste from the dustbins efficiently due to financial and institutional constraints (Momen, 2002). Owing to the lack of dustbins or containers, primary waste collectors throw waste on open streets in different areas in the city. The Dhaka City Corporation has not yet taken any initiatives to raise awareness of the need for waste segregation at source.
Plastic Dumping Names Institution Plastic Dumping In the contemporary society, illegal dumping of wastes has gotten terrible. Many individuals dump wastes in areas that they are not permitted to dump their wastes. In my community, the residents are dumping their wastes in the woods and other open places without minding the consequences it has on the environment in which they live. Nonetheless, the worst part of this is the usage of plastic which cannot decompose. The plastic bags lay actually on the ground thereby blocking air into the soil besides not permitting nature to grow.
(“National Strategy on Biodegradable Waste”, 2004) The disposal of BMW is global concern in developing countries, for example, Malaysia, across the world. This is due to the poverty of country, the population growth with high urbanization rates, ineffectual and under-funded governments to prevent the management of wastes work efficiently. (Rakesh Kumar Pandey et al., 2013) The non-proper management of BMW will lead to the healthy problem of urban residents. The poor management of waste strategy will lead a community to negative economics, health, unfriendly environmental and social consequences. (Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, 2004) The situation will continue and suffer from unconstrained methane release from anaerobic waste decomposition and underground water contamination.
However, its uses are constantly decreased due to water pollution. Studies on the state of the water and sanitation in the Philippines have been conducted. These studies concluded that the deterioration of water quality in esteros, rivers and other water channels are mainly due to wastewaters that are being sent into these water bodies without treatment, most of which comes from domestic households and commercial establishments. Some of these studies also noted that solid wastes disposal also contributes to water pollution. Water pollution is a major issue which is considered as a serious problem by many
Like the others developing countries, solid waste management is a serious confront to Ethiopia. This is mainly due to rapid urbanization and population growth. Many towns in the country lack the financial resources and institutional capacity to provide the needed municipal infrastructure for adequate solid waste management (Dagnew et al, 2012). The solid waste management in Ethiopian cities has not been carried out in a sufficient, suitable and appropriate manner. As a result, the quality of environment in cities has become more serious from time to time, and people are suffering from living in such
BIN THAT THINK’S ABSTRACT: Through the history, the significant amount of solid waste generated by humans was due to low population density and low levels of the exploitation of natural resources. But in today’s scenario there is a drastic increase in garbage that is due to increase in population. Proper disposal of garbage makes environment clean, but improper disposal of garbage leads to health problems, hazards, pollution and thus affects the environment. Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into an environment that causes instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to the ecosystem. Especially growing countries and most populated cities are severely affected by
The change in lifestyles of societies have increased the rate of rejection of solid materials regularly from different sectors like domestic, industrial, commercial, agriculture, institutional, etc. Many of the urban areas around the country are plagued by the problems related to solid waste. Due to avoidance and lack of efforts by the municipal authorities, garbage and its management has become a persistent problem. Relatively there has been a decline in the service standards with respect to the collection and disposal of municipal solid waste. In many of the cities the unattended solid waste give rise to the insanitary conditions in densely populated slums which results in an increase in infestation in all segments of population with the waste handlers being more
