Solid Waste Management Planning
Waste management is the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal, and monitoring of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity and is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment and aesthetics. Waste management includes processes undertaken to recover resources from solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive substances with different methods and fields of expertise for each.
Waste management practices differ for urban and rural areas, and for residential and industrial producers. Management for non-hazardous residential, commercial, and institutional waste is usually the responsibility of local government authorities, while management for hazardous commercial and industrial waste is usually the responsibility of the generator. Local governments throughout the River Valley Region are most concerned with management of solid waste.
