Waste disposal is an ever-growing problem. Environmental groups, as well as government initiatives, campaign for more recycling, encouraging changes in lifestyle so that less waste is produced and also disposed of more safely and efficiently.

Modern methods of waste disposal are commonly referred to as waste management as they are increasingly using methods such as recycling that allows waste to be re-used and not simply disposed of.
