With more and more waste being produced per person and our ever growing population, waste management is a topic we should all know about. Every day we are developing and designing new innovative ways to combat the ever increasing waste that is produced year on year. Technology has played its part in allowing us to deal with this issue with cleaner and more efficient techniques. However we still have problems that come with the disposal methods, whether they are being ignored or inadequately applied. Poor waste management can cause severe harm to our environment including pollution to our soil, air and water.
