Recently, waste disposal practices have come under intense scrutiny. Several industries produce waste that must be disposed of in certain ways to avoid pollution. Nuclear power plant waste is radioactive and causes serious health issues if it isn't disposed of properly. Landfills cause other environmental issues by leaching hazardous materials into groundwater sources and contributing harmful gases to the environment. This book highlights the different types of waste disposal, the problems associated with each, and methods some countries have developed to mitigate problems caused by waste disposal.
