About waste services

Waste management can be classified as all the activities related to managing the waste generated at a specific location and/or project, and usually includes collection, transport, treatment, and disposal, as well as any post-disposal monitoring.  

An ever-rising, increasingly urbanized global population means that there will be a corresponding increased need for waste management services to deal with the growing amount of waste generated.
