Overview

Waste management can best be described as the collection, storage and disposal of waste. There is onus on every human to dispose waste correctly, whether an individual or organisation.

The most important reason for waste management is to protect the environment and the health of the population. Rubbish and waste can cause air and water pollution. Rotting waste is also known to produce harmful gases that mix with the air and can cause breathing problems in people.

Sources of waste

The different sources of waste include rubbish from household, schools, offices, market places, restaurants and many other public places. The other sources include medical waste, agricultural waste, End-of-life motors, Industrial, Construction and Electronic waste

Methods of waste disposal

There are many sources of waste, but there are also many methods of disposal. Incineration, which means to simply burn waste, Sanitary Landfills, which are just large pieces of land away from living places, Recycling is processing waste material into new useful products, with a view to reduce the use of raw materials. For organic waste, such as food and plant materials, the method of composting can be used.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
