What is Waste Management?
Every year around 63 million tonnes of waste is generated in India and most of it ends up in landfills. Waste management companies like Saahas Zero Waste ensure its safe collection, transportation and disposal. We also offer recycling solutions after treating solid waste and provide waste management solutions that maximise resource recovery.
Why is Waste Management required?
Waste management is essential for keeping our surroundings clean and hygienic. Lack of proper waste management causes pollution, spreads infectious diseases and causes irreparable damage to our environment. It also entails recycling of hazardous waste to prevent toxicity. Segregation of waste is the key to the success of waste management and it is extremely beneficial for aesthetic as well as environmental well-being.
What are the environmental impacts of landfills?
Landfills have a tremendous impact on the environment. A large portion of landfill waste consists of biodegradable organic matter from industries, businesses and households. Years after its disposal, many of the material may still release chemicals or hazardous substances into the soil. In most cases, the decomposing material releases methane, a dangerous greenhouse gas. It also leads to soil and air pollution.
How does waste management work in India?
Waste collection is a huge challenge in India. Instead of thinking of waste as something that needs disposal, bulk waste generators need to ensure that their waste is managed responsibly. Companies like Saahas Zero Waste collect waste from companies and ensure its safe management in order to recover maximum resources from the waste, and send it for recycling. The local municipalities and the unorganised sector also collect waste from door-to-door. If the waste is not managed holistically, materials recovery is not enabled, and a most of it will reach landfill.
Do we really require to manage our waste in daily life in a proper way?
Improper waste management is a major cause of environmental pollution. Therefore, it is recommended to reduce waste in your daily life. Segregate your waste and choose sustainable products for daily use. Rotting garbage produces harmful gases that are a major cause of air pollution. It can also cause severe health hazards.
What are some effective waste management ideas?
Coloured dustbins for different types of waste can be placed to initiate waste segregation. It is easier to dispose and recycle segregated waste and therefore, is a great waste management idea. Encouraging the use of recyclable products and banning single use plastic can work in favour of waste management.
