The wastes are generally dumped on land or discharged into water bodies. Informal processing of waste in industries of developing countries can lead to adverse human health effects and environmental pollution. Management of Industrial Solid Waste (ISW) is not the responsibility of local bodies. Industries have to manage solid waste by themselves and to seek clearance from respective State Pollution Control Board (SPCBs). Especially, processing and manufacturing industries have no time to segregate wastes because they concentrate only on the development of their products.
The sharp increase in the volume and diversity of waste materials generated by human activity and their potentially harmful effects on public health and the environment, presents the need to adopt scientific methods for safe disposal of wastes and for the conversion of wastes to productive uses such as energy generation. This does not advocate for the generation of more wastes but places emphasis on the utilization of waste that cannot be absorbed through the institution of waste minimization, recycling or composting programmes, NEPA (2010). The aim is to focus on disposal of residual waste in a safe and environmentally‐friendly manner through its conversion into
Moreover, large amounts of e-waste can end up in places where it may not be able to go through the proper process of being recycled. This leads to an issue concerning the efficiency of such valuable materials and their hazardous nature towards the environment. Thus the increase in production of such goods leads an increase in e-waste, which is unethical due
American produce a lot of trash, now add the rest of the world and tell me how much the entire world produces in one whole year. If you did the math it turns out to be that the world throws away 250 trillion pounds of trash each year. Thats a lot of trash and waste. Consequences of trash and waste are that it builds up over time and then we run out of room till we start to live on this trash and waste. Also we can't burn this trash as much as we want because it gives of a small amount of CO2.
Thus, decreased consumption might slow down the speed of technology development. To conclude, e-waste pollution problem in Guiyu does need more social concerns and collective actions from stakeholders since ecological environment and residents’ lives deserve priority compared with economic development. Setting up a government controlling department and promoting educations through NGOS could not solve the problem substantially but flourish in a short term. Nevertheless, enhanced manufacture designs could play an important role in the longstanding plan. Hopefully, the e-waste pollution problem can really be solved in the foreseeable
Hazardous waste: Some share of generated waste includes the hazardous wastes which is harmful for environment if necessary cares do not considered after usage of them, normally the definition of the hazardous wastes are the same within all aviation business based on the reports and information of the producers and suppliers. Hazardous wastes are including used oil of different part of every aircrafts, some types of lubricants and chemicals, batteries, components and items at security and redundant Electronic and electrical equipment. Some of the hazardous waste must only be removed by Hazardous waste specialists like the radioactive instruments which may cause radiation danger. Almost all hazardous waste has their special waste management
The UN warned that millions of mobile phones, laptops, tablets, toys, digital cameras, and other electronics are creating a harmful flood of "e-waste" that is being illegally dumped in third world countries (Vidal). Electronic waste is one of the rapidly growing problems of the world today. It is made of a multitude of components, some containing toxic substances (Pinto). If not handled properly, e-waste can have an adverse impact on human health and the environment (Pinto). Environmental problems arising from the disposal of hazardous waste in Third World countries first gained
Of particular concern are the communities who dispose waste indiscriminately unaware of the dangers they pose to the environment and to their health. This deserves not only the attention of learning and research institutions but also concerns of corporate organizations and individuals to find a lasting solution to the problem. This is because there is continued production of waste with increase in population, which means immense environmental degradation and deterioration of human health, especially since there is no proper waste management system in place. The challenge is to eliminate the health and environmental risks by overcoming the problem of indiscriminate dumping by the communities. Therefore, the study aims to explore appropriate strategies and recommendations of clearing waste in all parts in and around the University in a sustainable manner.
