About the book

Recycling is the collection and processing of items that would otherwise be discarded as waste in order to create a new product. Recycled material is being used in an increasing number of today's products. Waste management is primarily concerned with a wide range of wastes, including industrial, biological, household, municipal, organic, biomedical, and radioactive wastes. Human activity, such as the mining and processing of basic resources, generates waste and poses health problems that can emerge both indirectly and directly. Waste mismanagement is a serious problem on an individual and a governmental level. Nowadays, the waste disposal business is both hazy and straining to adapt to globalized consumerism, a system in which things are manufactured on one continent, purchased and used on another, and disposed of on still another. Therefore, remediation is often subject to a variety of legal criteria, but it can also be based on evaluations of human health and environmental concerns in cases where no statutory standards exist or when standards are advisory.
