What the Benefits of Waste Management Try to Convey to People Waste management involves a lot of processes including collecting, transporting, processing or disposing waste materials, usually those produced by activities of human, in an effort to minimize their impacts on the environment and human health. It also involves liquid, solid or gaseous, with variety of methods and fields of expertise designed for each one. The practices and benefits of waste management are different for developed as well as developing nations and for commercial, residential and industrial producers. Waste management for non-hazardous institutional and residential waste in major areas and cities is typically the responsibility of the local environment, while management for hazardous industrial and commercial waste is the responsibility of those generating them. Waste management has several concepts that vary in their usage between regions or countries. Managing industrial, commercial and domestic waste traditionally consisted of collection and followed by disposal. Depending on the type of waste and the area, a processing level may be followed by collection. This processing is designed to reduce the hazard of waste, generate energy from the waste, recover materials for recycling or reduce it in volume for a more efficient waste disposal. Methods of collection can widely vary between different regions and countries and it is not possible to describe them all. For instance, in Australia, most urban domestic households have bins that are emptied on a weekly basis. Most areas, such as those less developed ones do not have proper waste collection system in place. Disposal methods are widely varied as well. In Australia again, the most common solid waste disposal method is to landfills. But today, especially in major Australian cities like Brisbane, the idea of recycling has been greatly considered especially when it has been linked to various benefits. To recycle Brisbane is an activity that almost everyone can participate and benefit of. Recycling means reusing materials that are otherwise considered waste or useless. The popular definition of recycling in developing countries refers to the widespread collection and reusing of single use beverage containers. Such containers are collected and then sorted into common groups so the raw materials of the items can be reused. Recycling Brisbane is very easy as common waste items such as tin cans, plastic and glass bottles and even newspapers and magazines can be found at home.
