Question and answer
Describe waste dumps that causes ill health,crises and disasters within communities or globally?
The waste that we generate in cities can have a detrimental effect on the health of people and the environment if: a landfill site is very close to where people live, or it is poorly developed (for example, [ where poisoned water gets into the ground and rivers) or it is badly managed (for example there is no fence around it, or that waste is not covered daily with sand,) or the waste is not taken to managed landfill sites, but just dumped in open spaces). This resource is concerned with formal (properly licensed and managed) landfill sites. It aims to help those who
have problems with such sites that are close them, and those who have heard of plans for new landfill sites to be made close to them.Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients are considered to be household hazardous waste (HHW). Products, such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides, that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special care when you dispose of them. Improper disposal of HHW can include pouring them down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or in some cases putting them out with the trash. The dangers of such disposal methods might not be immediately obvious, but improper disposal of these wastes can pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health. Many communities in the United States offer a variety of options for conveniently and safely managing HHW. ]
