Waste Collection, Treatment and Disposal Services
Waste collection refers to the process of collecting and transporting waste materials from homes, businesses, and other locations to a designated facility for processing and disposal. This includes the use of specialized vehicles, such as garbage trucks, to collect and transport the waste.
Waste treatment refers to the process of sorting, separating, and processing waste materials to reduce their volume and harmful effects on the environment. This can include recycling, composting, and incineration.
Waste disposal refers to the final step in the waste management process, where waste materials are safely and responsibly disposed of in a manner that minimizes their impact on the environment. This can include landfill disposal, incineration, and deep well injection.
Waste collection, treatment, and disposal services are typically provided by local governments or private companies, and are regulated by federal, state, and local laws to ensure compliance with environmental standards.
