THE IMPORTANCE OF WASTE MANAGEMENT TO ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION. A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE
“Sanitation generally refers to the provision of facilities and services for the safe disposal of human urine and feces. Inadequate sanitation is a major cause of disease world-wide and improving sanitation is known to have a significant beneficial impact on health both in households and across communities. The word ‘sanitation’ also refers to the maintenance of hygienic conditions, through services such as garbage collection and wastewater disposal.”
If you think about the coming years, you’ll understand why waste management is important. It’s like constant contaminated oxygen for all we know. It plays a major role in our lives and the environment in general. It’s like living in a room with sections that contain the waste as well as the fresh air. How long will you be able to survive? We live in a world that needs to be protected. For a healthier, hygienic environment, it’s important that wastes are managed properly.
