Alongside waste management issues including finding a dumpster near me, there are other concerns and it is important to report them because their impact on a discharge can be significant.
• Medical waste: waste from hospitals, medical clinics or veterinarians, psychiatric centers should be cremated or should not be accepted in landfills only after sterilization. We are talking here about the part related to medical practice itself.
• Faeces may be accepted in the landfill provided they are sanitize beforehand.
• The carcasses of healthy animals can be used in the prepa ration of foods for animals; however, this practice can be dangerous and should to be increasingly regulated. If this option is not possible, a small quantity of carcasses can be mixed with the rest of the waste. If the quantity is important, a special place in the landfill must be reserved for them after sanitization (with quicklime for example) and quickly covered. The case of carcasses of sick animals is assimilated to hospital waste.
Volatile and flammable waste: waste presenting a risk of explosion or easily igniting (explosives, petroleum products, liquids and volatile gases, solvents, paints) should be banned from landfills. In in the event that such waste cannot be refused, a special section of the landfill should be reserved for them (particular and accessible confinement). The location should be clearly marked and noted on the final site plan at the closure of the landfill.
• Cells and batteries: they are an important source of metals heavy (lead, nickel, mercury, cadmium, zinc, etc.). For this reason they should not be accepted as landfill. The current trend is to recycle them. If this option is not feasible, they should be stockpiled in dry warehouses and isolated from the environment pending a solution.
• Construction debris and heavy objects: construction debris and heavy objects heavy (car and refrigerator carcasses, furniture, office equipment, etc.) are often recyclable or recoverable. If not, the first can be used as cover layers at the end of the day and it is advisable to cover the latter with other types of waste before compacting to avoid any damage to construction machinery (compactors, etc.) and trucks collection. Note that some building materials, such as cements and mostly plasters, contain sulphate compounds relatively soluble which can be the cause of a deregulating sulphate reduction biomethanation processes. It is therefore advisable to insulate these materials from any source of organic matter.
• Tires are an increasingly serious problem, by their very nature and their number which increases more and more in the cities. They can be used as support for embankments associated with construction waste, to reduce the risk of fire associated with the accumulation of these materials flammable.
• Sludge from water treatment centers: water treatment processes wastewater produces a sludge which concentrates the elements encountered in the water treat. Some also treat water from septic tanks. sludge coming from these centers constitute a serious health hazard because of the pathogenic microbes and the organic load they can carry. When the chemical quality (heavy metal content, etc.) allows it, the best use of this type of waste is spreading it on agricultural land, otherwise landfilling is in order. Whatever the outcome, it is necessary to carry out a sanitization or sterilization and drying treatment.
• Industrial waste: the waste produced by industry is very varied. They can be liquid or solid and their physico-chemical characteristics also vary greatly. If these wastes are not toxic, i.e. if they do not present a potential danger to human health or to living organisms, their disposal may not be a problem.
