Sample text

Compost from mixed domestic wastes is not easily marketed. Cases of failure to find markets have been well documented in Germany and other European countries. However, compost produced by plants in the Middle East has been in such demand that in some cases would-be customers have had to join a two year waiting list. Composts produced in Japan (from sewage sludge, agricultural and municipal wastes) and the former USSR are used almost exclusively by farmers. Increasingly, countries are favouring the separate collection of putrescible household wastes.

There are many different ways of dealing with waste in order to minimise risks to public health and the environment. For many years waste management was carried out in a piecemeal, relatively unplanned way. More recently, experience has shown that a more sustainable approach to society’s uses of resources and management of wastes is needed. The term integrated waste management (IWM) is often used to describe an approach in which decisions on waste policies and practices take account of waste streams, collection treatment and disposal methods, environmental benefits, economic optimisation and social acceptability.

Wastes are kept further from any potential contact with groundwater, and leakages are easier to identify and control. Pollution from landjills. A waste disposal facility must guarantee adequate control over the two main types of pollution - leachate and landfill gas. When landfill gas is collected some liquid (condensate) is also collected. Leachate is generated as a result of moisture entry into a landfill, either as rain, snow melt, run-on or as moisture in the waste itself.
