Benefits of Waste disposal
Waste Disposal is integral to saving the environment, 30 million tonnes of waste is generated every year, with a large percentage of it ending up in landfills up and down the country.
Aside from taking up finite space on our small island, these landfills emit an array of harmful gases into the atmosphere which in turn contributes to the effect of greenhouse gas production if not used in an appropriate way; this is the same when creating new products from our limited resources as greenhouse gases are emitted during production.
As we are of course a part of the environment, the benefits of effective waste disposal are also extremely beneficial for our general health and well being.
As we’ve already mentioned, landfills that don’t utilise an efficient waste to energy strategy can release large amounts of harmful gases into the atmosphere.
Some of these gases remain as solid compounds in the air and can cause a range of detrimental effects to our health, from asthma to more serious conditions like emphysema.
Businesses have a duty of care when it comes to their waste management.
Depending on the company type you may have to adhere to a strict set of rules when getting rid of your rubbish.
If you decide to dispose of your own waste, as a standard, you must produce ‘waste transfer notes’ which detail the specificities of your waste disposal. This allows the authorities to monitor your waste output and ensure you’re remaining compliant.
Waste in the ocean
The most toxic waste material dumped into the ocean includes dredged material, industrial waste, sewage sludge, and radioactive waste. Dredging contributes about 80% of all waste dumped into the ocean, adding up to several million tons of material dumped each year.
Rivers, canals and harbors are dredged to remove silt and sand buildup or to establish new waterways.
About 20-22% of dredged material is dumped into the ocean the remainder is dumped into other waters or landfills and some is used for development.
About 10% of all dredged material is polluted with heavy metals such as cadmium, mercury, and chromium, hydrocarbons such as heavy oils, nutrients including phosphorous and nitrogen organochlorines from pesticides.
Waterways and, therefore, silt and sand accumulate these toxins from land runoff, shipping practices, industrial and community waste, and other sources.
When these materials find their way into the ocean, marine organisms suffer toxic effects and seafood is often contaminated.
