In order for the perfect change we need to find solutions towards our way of dealing with solid waste. A simple and obvious way to start is to stop throwing out junk out in the public streets. In an article I found, “Over 51 billion pieces of litter land on U.S. roadways each year most of it, 46.6 billion pieces, is less than four inches, according to KAB’s National Visible Litter Survey and Litter Cost Study” ( http://www.litteringiswrongtoo.org/faq). If you calculate the mass of trash its accumulates to 6,729 pieces of trash per mile. That is a lot of trash in the streets. Reducing trash thrown out makes our city less dense with trash and it gives better looking streets. Another type of way to fix the amount of solid waste is to recycle, reuse and reduce. The recycling process embraces the time for the collecting, separating and processing. In a book In a book I found by Shammas, Nazih K., Wang, Lawrence K., Hung, Yung-Tse ,” Four primary collection programs widely used in many countries are curbside collection, drop-off centers, buy-back centers, and deposit/refund programs”,(The handbook of environment and waste management pg.594). When you recycle you can get money back for being a smart. When you reuse you can cut back on the amount pollution you are putting out. On a government page I found online,”Instead of discarding unwanted appliances, tools, or clothes, try selling or donating them. Not only will you be reducing waste, you'll be helping others. Local churches,…
material one would go as far as placing the harmful waste in the garbage can for the sanitation workers to pick up once a week.
Most people are not familiar with the proper disposal of hazardous waste. One would think just pouring your expired medicine down the drain and turning on the garbage disposal is one way. In fact, that is the most dangerous way to dispose of expired medicine.

Today Harrisburg, a city of about 49,000, owes more than $280 million on the project and has amassed a per capita…

Solid Energy's recent problems highlight once again the issue of corporate governance. Who is responsible for the company's difficulties? Why did its borrowings soar from just $15 million in 2007 to $295 million in June 2012 and nearly $400 million at present? Why have the company's costs nearly doubled over the past five years? Solid Energy's recent history begins and ends with…
There is no clear description regarding food waste in a universal matter either historically or presently, making it perplexing in definition and comparison. What is clear is that food waste continues to grow at a rapid pace with the expansion of a world population experiencing societal and agricultural developments in an era where land and other resources are becoming more limited. The increase in waste and category of foods which people throw away has transformed with time through the advancement…
