Solid waste includes a large variety of items that are usually found in households, as well as commercial and industrial locations. Broken down into categories, solid waste constitutes:
- Plastic Waste
- Paper Rubbish

Often found in households and industries, this waste type includes organic liquids, dirty water, wash water, waste detergents and rainwater. Keep in mind that some liquid waste is not environmentally friendly in the slightest, and should be disposed of appropriately. Wastewater, or point source waste as it is often called, is the terminology used for any manufactured waste that exists in liquid form. Non-point source waste is the alternate term used for natural liquid waste.
Organic waste can be found in almost all homes, and consists of food, garden waste, and similar organic items. This waste type still needs to be appropriately disposed of despite the eco-friendly advantage of it being broken down naturally by microorganisms. Organic waste in landfills unfortunately causes the production of methane, so it must never be accidentally discarded alongside the general waste of a household.
Hazardous waste includes all types of rubbish that are potentially dangerous, with flammable, corrosive and toxic waste all within this category. As well as the danger this waste can potentially pose to humans, it can also be harmful to the environment. Dispose of this waste correctly, ideally with the help of a waste disposal company.
Recyclable waste refers to any waste that can be converted to reusable products via waste recycling methods. A large portion of the items classed as construction waste come within this category, including metal, masonry and furniture. Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining and processing raw materials, which generates significant air and water pollution, therefore recyclable waste should always be disposed of correctly.
