Each year, Americans generate over 250 million tons of waste, of which, a little less than one-third is recycled. Waste management involves the control of generation, storage, collection, transport/transfer, and processing and disposal of the waste materials in a manner that best addresses environmental, public health, aesthetics, and other community concerns. Waste includes household waste as well as industrial waste which often includes hazardous materials. Proper waste and recycling practices involves community planning, regulatory compliance, and administrative reporting to document the life cycle of the waste and address any potential issues that may arise, to include debris removal after a disaster.
