materials produced by human activity, and the process is generally undertaken to
reduce their effect on
health, the environment or aesthetics. Waste
management is a distinct practice from
resource recovery which
focuses on delaying the rate of consumption of
natural resources. All
waste materials, whether they are

solid
, liquid,
gaseous

remit of waste management.
