Waste management has developed into an industry larger than just removing waste. It involves the separation of organic wastes from inorganic and non-recyclable wastes. The recyclable items are re-processed and used to create new products. This method reduces any further damage on natural resources and lowers the ultimate waste disposal needs.

By consolidating residential and some types of commercial wastes and using appropriate disposal technology, public health risks rodents and insects can pose is reduced. Another health benefit is the control of disposal methods that prevent indiscriminate burning or burial methods that could pose long term and acute health risks.

Industrial waste management aims to control all waste streams (solid and liquid) that pose a risk to public health and the environment. Environmental organizations and recycling companies sort the wastes accordingly and dispose them of in the most environmentally friendly manner. This practice allows the recovery of reusable materials for recycling purposes.
Materials usually recycled:

The future of the planet lies on the hands of every individual and all the companies engaged in manufacturing and disposal of different types and volumes of wastes. With proper waste disposal and management, the world can be a better place to live.
