Waste disposal

  1. 1. Just pay attention to the lecture. The slides can be downloaded from http://www.slideshare.net/haqinaam/waste-disposal<br />http://www.slideshare.net/haqinaam/waste-disposal<br />
  2. 2. SOLID WASTE<br />http://www.slideshare.net/haqinaam/waste-disposal<br />
  3. 3. Some terms we need to know<br />REFUSE:<br />Solid or semisolid waste matter produced in the normal course of human activities. Generated from street sweepings, markets, stable litter, industrial refuse, commercial refuse, etc.<br />RUBBISH:<br />Solid wastes originating in houses, commercial establishments, industries, excluding garbage and ash.<br />GARBAGE:<br />Animal & vegetable wastes resulting from the handling, storage, sale, preparation, cooking and serving of food.<br />ASH:<br />Residue from burning of wood, coal, charcoal and other combustible materials used for cooking and heating purposes in houses, industries etc.<br />http://www.slideshare.net/haqinaam/waste-disposal<br />
  4. 4. Sources of solid wastes<br />Street refuse<br />Market refuse<br />Stable litter<br />Industrial refuse<br />Domestic refuse<br />In most of the countries the per capita daily solid waste produced is between 0.25 to 2.5 Kg<br />http://www.slideshare.net/haqinaam/waste-disposal<br />
