The process of waste management includes the techniques and methods used for the management of waste from its creation to disposal. Municipal solid waste contributes the maximum amount of waste produced due to industrial, commercial and household activities. Waste is incinerated or disposed in landfills. It can be recycled and reprocessed into new usable products. Waste management is based on waste hierarchy or the principles of the 3Rs namely, reduce, reuse and recycle. Designing products to be reusable, use of second-hand products and repairing broken items are some ways we can minimize waste generation. Beverage cans, rubber tires, food cans, glass bottles, jars, newspapers, etc. are common recyclable consumer products. This book elucidates the concepts and innovative models around prospective developments with respect to solid waste management. It outlines the processes and applications of solid waste management in detail. This book is appropriate for students seeking detailed information in this area as well as for experts.
