Disposal & Landfilling


This activity consists of the final disposal of waste or residuals from the aforementioned operations, through landfilling or incinerating without energy recovery, and as a result is not considered as a recycling or recovery operation. As plastic is wasted on landfills it is vital to propagate environmental awareness and waste management as plastic is a valuable recyclable resource. In addition, more restrictive laws should be enforced which would lead to ban of landfilling.
