Garbage is waste materials that are disposed of after use. Thus, the waste is both biodegradable and non-biodegradable, and it pollutes the environment like soil, water, and air. Therefore, the garbage issues should be approached scientifically while disposing waste to nature. Disposal waste has contributed to climate change. The governments, private sectors, and environmental organizations should work together to develop strategies that can help in managing the garbage. These entities should develop an environmental policy that assists in managing the garbage we produce. The paper discusses an environmental policy that helps in waste management.
Environmental policy is the environmental laws, regulations and other mechanisms strategies that the organization, government, and environmentalists agree to promote waste management. Thus, it involves environment measures in to ensure garbage control. This measures help in garbage collection, promote activities that minimize the impacts of waste on environmental pollution, and reduce activities that contribute to pollution.
The Waste management strategies that help in achieving the policy
Promote Efficiency and effective operation
The organizations should evaluate operations to ensure that it minimizes the waste materials. The efficiency and effective operation will help the companies to reduce the waste products thus maximizing use of resources. The policy should highlight methods that should be used to improve organizations production efficiency and effectiveness. For instance, new advanced technological equipment in the will tend to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the operations thus emitting less pollution to the air. The government and organizations should engage general public to sensitize them on the importance of effectiveness in use of their dairy products.
The policy should outline on how the organization should promote internal and external strategies that will assist in recycling the garbage. The recycling is an act of converting waste to usable material or product. Hence this will reduce the impacts of the waste on the environmental issues. Therefore recycling is important in preserving resources and also controlling so many harmful effects it has on the environment. Thus, will improve the environment and reduce negative effects on the environment.
Rules, laws and Regulations compliance
The organizations should meet and exceed the environmental policies and regulation in place to avoid. There are exists rules and regulations that are put in place by governments, global environmental bodies, and organizations. Thus many organizations and companies deem these regulations expensive to comply with. These measures include the percentage limit of toxic gas emission and a waste of material regulations. Complying with the regulations and policies put in place without considering the costs will help in reducing the pollution and garbage we produce.
The environmentalist, government, and organizations should join hand to start training programs and campaign about the importance of effective waste management. The training program initiation to employees and the general public about environmental issues should be one of the strategies that will in reducing the garbage we produce. Through training of the employees, the companies will adopt methods that are effective and efficient. Also, training of general public to avoid wastage of materials and the best waste way to dispose of the garbage will help in achieving effective waste management.
Toxic emissions and source of energy
The policy should include the strategies that help in reducing toxic emissions. The organizations should encourage innovation that helps in creating environmental production methods. For instances, the company is willing to change the source of power of the productions. Through evaluating different methods source of energy in production and choosing the production source that has less harmful to the environment. This strategy will help in reducing the negative impacts on the environments. Also, the company will advocate for this method to its suppliers and other companies. Moreover, the company could focus on improving and developing a renewable source of energy in its production.
Safer disposal options
Good disposal of wastes will reduce the harmful effects of the environments. This will reduce littering around thus decreasing harmful impact to the environment.
