Hazardous waste, if mismanaged, have the potential to pollute and paralyze the environment and human health
critically.A scientific process of managing hazardous waste entails proper containment, management, and disposal of wastes which could be considered hazardous.Hazardous may include bio-medical waste and also common household wastes like paints and chemicals that are inflammable.Ideally hazardous wastes should be disposed off in special containers and under the stipulated guidelines.
Hazardous waste pollution is a major area of concern for the authorities as in many cases containment technology is absent. Radioactive and bio-medical waste can be a serious threat not only to the human health, but also to the national security. Education and outreach programs are equally important for an effective management of hazardous waste.Businesses which have a routine generation of hazardous waste may need a hazardous waste disposal contract with a waste management agency, which includes the provision of specialized containers for waste collection.
