Waste management is a process of treating various types of solid waste. The process of waste management includes collection, transportation, storage, treatment, and disposal of solid waste. Regulatory authorities around the world have categorized solid waste into hazardous waste, and non-hazardous waste, based upon various parameters. Any solid waste which is either explosive, inflammable, oxidizing, poisonous or infectious, corrosive, radioactive, or toxic in nature is termed as hazardous waste. Treatment of non-hazardous waste is minimally regulated by regulatory authorities around the world, apart from emission norms during incineration treatment of non-hazardous waste. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the U.S., has laid down the hazardous waste management plan to effectively and safely dispose hazardous waste generated in the country.
