Disposing of Waste at Home or Business

Having a build-up of waste in the home, garden or business premises can be a problem and the bigger it grows the more work will be involved to remove it.

Certain types of garden waste can hide some nasty surprises and rodents may decide to live inside causing a health hazard.

This should be handled with care and by a licensed waste carrier to ensure everything is disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

A way of managing your waste more effectively is to have appropriate storage. To do this you should invest in some large secure bins for the home of if you are a business consult with a company to provide you with large waste containers that can be taken away on a regular basis. This will both minimise the waste laying about and make the home or business more tidy and safe.

Try to recycle a much of your items as possible. Materials such as plastic, glass, card and paper can all be separated into different boxes and containers away from things like food waste and be taken away by your local council for recycling on a separate day.

If you are indeed hiring a firm to do this you must check that they are licensed and have the appropriate paperwork and license number to prove that they are legal to operate.

There are certain items that will require a specialist to remove away from a home or work building. Washing machines, fridges (which contain a gas cylinder), car batteries, and chemicals cannot just be taking to the local dump as they are a harm to the environment. There are companies that deal with separately so you must check to see what the firm will accept beforehand.

Is Air Pollution Becoming Our Number One Public Health Challenge?

The menace of air pollution cannot be over emphasized. It has managed to cause havoc from a personal level to the whole society at large. Efforts to curb air pollution are usually met with great challenges like limited resources, ignorance, greed and corruption. There has been a raised concern on the deteriorating condition of the environment which is even affecting the younger generation. Air borne diseases like TB and asthma, and even worse chronic conditions like lung cancer are all the ugly side effects of air pollution. Dense smoke emitting from factories is the picture that comes into mind when speaking of air population. But pollution may also take subtler forms which may be noticed or not by man. Actually, any foreign body introduced to the atmosphere which is damaging is qualified to be called an air pollutant.

The main form of pollution to the environment is carbon dioxide emitted from cars, planes and industrial factories. Human activities over the past century have caused a serious raise in the atmospheric levels compared to past years. The ozone layer is also affected by release of methane which was even later banned because of its harmful effects. In reality, air pollution can now be safely termed as a number one public health challenge. Other natural processes may also be a contributing factor to air pollution. Volcanoes release high amounts of sulfur dioxide which may hang on the air and cause effects in human life and livestock even long after the eruption. The effects of air pollution are felt by everyone including:

• Depletion of ozone layer; the ozone layer needs to be in good shape for the well-being of the eco-system. But the emissions of harmful and destructive gases into the atmosphere have caused an imbalance in the atmosphere, destroying the ozone layer which is supposed to protect life on earth from extreme weather. This has been called the worst nightmare the world will have to face when dealing with air pollution.
• Air borne diseases; asthma is intensified when a sufferer is exposed to contaminated air. New- borns are also affected by contaminated air which may give rise to health complications even in future.
• Unhealthy foods as a result of chemicals form fertilizers; the 21st century is evident proof of conditions arising from polluted food products. The earth has been so depleted of its nutrients so much that agriculture has to depend on chemically filled fertilizers for better produce. Tumors and growths are often the result of consumption of such unhealthy foods.
• Acid rain; rain should be beneficial aspect of climatic change, but this is not often the causes in times of acid rain. Harmful gases which result in acid rain case great damage to animals and crops as well as human life.
There is the visible and invisible part of air pollution that needs to be addressed both by the government and individuals on a personal level. Home owners should be ready to adopt recycling habits and industries reduce carbon emissions.
