Impact of Solid Waste on Health and the Environment

Swati Srivastava, Ritu Singhvi

Modernization and progress has had its share of disadvantages and one of the main aspects of concern is the pollution it is causing to the earth be it land, air, and water. With increase in the global population and the rising demand for food and other essentials, there has been a rise in the amount of waste being generated daily by each household. Waste that is not properly managed, especially excreta and other liquid and solid waste from households and the community, are a serious health hazard and lead to the spread of infectious diseases. Thus excessive solid waste that is generated should be controlled by taking certain preventive measures.
