There are basically three main types of waste that we can categorize everything into, they are liquid, solid and harmful waste. There different ways of treating each type of waste material. Some categories are further divided based on their nature. Here is how they are dealt with and the types of categories they are divided into. Starting with the liquid this is basically waste in non-solid form. The most common liquid waste is the waste water from homes, offices and factories.
House waste and offices are almost the same as they are drained in to sewers underground and guided through strong pipes able withstand pressure underground in to a single point of collection for all the waste water. Some areas are in low lands meaning the pipes can’t be inclined downwards to be helped by gravity to take the water. Thus, wastewater pump stations are built in these towns to pump them in to the collection points.

Solid is takes up the majority of waste production in the world. Everything and I mean everything in the house that is solid is solid waste material. This includes old tires, unusable furniture, bag, food, boxes, etc. There are several methods disposing all these. Some countries have a landfill system which is quite common where the garbage is taken by the garbage collectors and burying them.
It is used both in developed and developing countries but more common in developing countries. This is not environment friendly as it gives way for environment pollution significantly endangering the lives of everyone especially those living close by. Safe ways of disposing of solid is by composting organic material which can later be used as fertilizer. Other environment friendly methods are recycling where they collect waste according to the nature of the waste in example – polythene, plastic, organic, etc. Where they remake different products with the waste, it is considered very environment friendly.
Last type of waste is factory which is very harmful to the environment. The waste mostly comes in liquid form but also comes in solid as well. The reason it is harmful is because it could be poisonous, inflammable, reactive, etc. Owners of factories must set a system of disposal when it comes to disposal of this type of waste. In fact it required by law to do so where the authorities will inspect the factories and grade if they are environmental friendly.
