WASTE MANAGEMENT (HAZARDOUS AND GENERAL WASTE MANAGEMENT)


Waste management can be a complex task that requires appropriate co-operation and organisation between households, communities, private enterprises and inter-governmental relations. The minimum requirements for Disposal by Landfill site (DWAF, 1998) defines waste as “ any undesirable or superfluous matter, material, by-product or residue of any process or activity that has been discard, accumulated or stored for the purpose of treatment, discarding or recycling and may be liquid or solid, may include products that may contain a gaseous component and may originate from domestic, commercial, medical or industrial activities, but does not include any gas or gaseous products.

General waste refers to waste that is considered to have less detrimental effects on both human health and the environment if properly managed. Due to composition of general waste, it does not pose any significant threat to the public as well as the environment. It requires less sophisticated mechanism to manage.

Hazardous Waste is defined as: “an inorganic or organic element or compound that, because of its toxicological, physical, chemical or persistency properties, may exercise detrimental acute or chronic impacts on human health and the environment. It can be generated from a wide range of commercial, industrial, agricultural and domestic activities and may take the form of liquid, sludge or solid. These characteristics contribute not only to degree of hazard, but are also of great importance in the ultimate choice of a safe and environmentally acceptable method of disposal.
