Waste disposal procedures exist because people have realized that certain types of waste can do damage if they’re just thrown anywhere. The system of waste disposal was developed through lots of research, and is carefully planned to funnel waste into various places, and through various disposal methods, in order to ensure the safety and health of humans as well as the planet. The problem is that this carefully planned system doesn’t work if people don’t participate in it; when you dispose of your waste, you’re the first step in the chain. if you do it properly, the waste goes on to its safe destination. If you don’t – or if anyone else along the chain doesn’t – do it right, the waste gets sent off into places where it can do plenty of damage.If you have questions about proper waste disposal, ask. If you don’t know how to sort your recyclables, or if you’re unsure what to do with old drywall, call around to local disposal facilities to find the answers. These may seem like small things, but if you let them slip – and everyone else lets them slip – they can quickly turn into big problems.
