Municipal solid waste (MSW) consists of everyday items such as product packaging, yard trimmings, furniture, clothing, bottles and cans, food, newspapers, appliances, electronics, and batteries. Organic materials are the largest component of MSW with paper and paperboard accounting for over 25%, yard trimmings and food accounting for over another 25%, plastics comprising about 15%, metals comprising about 10%, and rubber, leather, and textiles account for another 10%.
MSW and landfill programs recognize waste as a resource that needs to be managed to promote economic vitality, ecological integrity, and improved quality of life in a manner that fosters sustainability. In addition to ensuring that waste disposal practices are protective of the public and environment, a good approach promotes a systematic approach to using/reusing these resources productively and sustainably throughout their life cycles, from extraction through the material being recycled or finally disposed of. MSW experts normally oversee waste management schemes, such as those at landfill sites. They assist with the supervision of transporting waste to ensure that it takes place efficiently, without contaminating air, land, or water sources. They also assist with the development, promotion, and implementation of new waste disposal schemes.
