Disposal Management, provides efficient and cost

effective disposal services for industry and commercial customers.

Disposal Management is continually researching technological advances within the industry to better offer

and provide alternatives for reducing and recycling waste


streams.

Environmental health issues Efficient utilization of waste in the form of resource.

Reduction in the volume of waste streams


Cost-effective methods for handling all waste streams Tailored recycling programs for you and your business Innovative technologies

Solid Waste Disposal Methods For disposing solid wastes, you can adopt a number of methods like compost, landfill and burning. Let's take a look at each of them: Biological Reprocessing Biological reprocessing methods such as composting can be used for organic waste like food, paper and plant Composting

Used to dispose off organic household waste which get decomposed. Soil is replenished thereby reducing cost of land reclamation. Sanitary Landfill

Disposing of waste in a landfill involves burying the waste. In landfilling, trenches are made on the flat surfaces. Soil is excavated from the trenches and waste material is buried in it which is covered by a thick layer of soil. Relatively cheap option

But still not very environmentally sound treatment

Burning

An environmentally sound treatment method for substances. Alternative option through which the volume can be quickly reduced. Uses filters and scrubbers so that poisonous and acidic gases are not released into the atmosphere. Incineration It is a controlled and complete combustion process, in which

the waste material is burned in specially designed incinerators


at a high temperature (900-1000oC).

There is reduction of waste volume and the Utilization of the energy content of combustible materials.

This process reduces the volumes of solid waste


to 20 to 30 percent of the original volume. Used for inorganic waste(e-waste).

The waste is disposed off in oceans and seas


Advantages: Convenient.

Inexpensive .
Source of nutrients, shelter and breeding . Disadvantages: Ocean overburdened . Destruction of food sources. Killing of water-life .

Disposing of waste in a landfill involves burying the waste. In land filling, trenches are made on the flat surfaces.

Soil is excavated from the trenches and waste material is buried in


it which is covered by a thick layer of soil. Relatively cheap option But still not very environmentally sound treatment method for substances.

Advantages: Volume can increase with little addition of people/equipment . Filled land can be reused for other community purposes .

Disadvantages: Completed landfill areas can settle and requires maintenance . Requires proper planning, design, and operation.

Advantages: Requires minimum land . Can be operated in any weather . Produces stable odor-free residue . Refuse volume is reduced by half .
Disadvantages: Expensive to build and operate . High energy requirement . Requires skilled personnel and continuous maintenance . Unsightly - smell, waste, vermin.

Generally, there are two types of costs associated with workplace waste: Waste disposal and management costs Costs associated with the generation of waste. Identify the hidden costs The costs associated with waste generation are often hidden to business, and can include: cost of raw material written off as waste lost opportunity (when waste can be converted into finished products) making waste waste treatment cost rework cost lost in production time staff time on unproductive waste management work storage and clean-up costs.

Introduction into legal affairs Optimisation of the waste logistic Waste management system Project goals reduction of the amount of waste and disposal costs objective evaluation of proposals of disposal performances and costs enhancement of the legal compliance avoidance of wrong investments due to a clever waste management. enhancement of the success of the project due to the integration of other operational areas.

With the legal check ; you gain legal compliance you avoid wrong investment decisions you check your contracts with your disposal company you minimise risk while handling with hazardous waste

Evaluation of the actual state Pointing out potentials Working out measures Alignment with other areas in the company Motivation/Information about waste separation Developing a waste management system.
