Solid Waste

Solid-waste management, the collecting, treating, and removing solid material that's discarded because it's served its purpose or is not any longer useful. Improper disposal of municipal solid waste can create unsanitary conditions, and these conditions successively can cause pollution of the environment and to outbreaks of vector-borne disease—that is, diseases spread by rodents and insects. The tasks of solid-waste management present complex technical challenges. They also pose a good sort of administrative, economic, and social problems that has got to be managed and solved.

Developments in waste management:

A technological approach to solid-waste management began to develop within the latter a part of the 19th century. Watertight garbage cans were first introduced in the United States, and sturdier vehicles were used to collect and transport wastes. A significant development in solid-waste treatment and disposal practices was marked by the development of the primary refuse incinerator in England in 1874. By the start of the 20th century, 15 percent of major American cities were incinerating solid waste.
