The management of dangerous and harmless waste


Every Romanian generates almost 1 kilo of waste products per day.

These waste products are made of left over, plastic, containers, packaging, newspapers, textile, garden waste, metal and even home appliances and cars.These scraps that are often called “urban waste” or “public waste” must be collected, transported and neutralized in a manner that can not disturb the environment for our and for the next generation.

The management of waste is becoming a citizen’s and local authorities’ concern from all over the country, as leaving the waste randomly, had led to a dangerous situation for the environment.

The European community leaves out 2000 millions tones of waste per year. Over 40 millions tones are toxic.

In the last 6 years, the quantity of generated waste grown almost about 10 % per year. The branches that generate the highest quantity are: agriculture, construction, mining and urban congestion. The most enlarge quantity of waste comes from agriculture, but the most dangerous dregs are from the industry. The Management of waste is a sequence of actions: gathering – transportation – processing – recycling - waste disposal.

A good waste management system starts its duty with preventing the increase of quantity of dregs. The complete or partial recycling leads to the decrease quantity of stored waste as well as the diminution the quantity of raw material that got in manufacture.

  • The principle of preventing – the production of waste must be diminished and avoided as much as possible.
  • The principle of production responsibility and paying the pollution – the one who produces the waste or contamination of the environment must pay the price of his acts.
  • The principle of caution - the potential problems must be anticipated.
  • The principle of proximity – the waste must be stored as close as possible to the place where the dregs were generated.
