The collection, transportation, treatment, analysis, and disposal of waste are all part of this process.
The term "solid waste management" refers to the procedure for gathering, handling, and getting rid of solid wastes. All non-liquid wastes are referred to as solid waste here. Wastes from the home, the farm, or even industry can all be included under this head.
There are various methods of managing solid waste, such as landfilling, burning, composting, vermicomposting, recycling, etc.
Pollution of surface water or groundwater may result from improper collection and disposal of solid waste. It is crucial that this garbage be treated properly because this could result in serious issues if the waste contains harmful materials and is consumed by the society in any manner.
