Sir: Garbage burning is very common in Pakistan special in our northern areas. Burning garbage releases dangerous gases and dust (particulate matter) which contribute to global warming and pollute lakes, forests, oceans and cities half a world away from where they originated. There are many ways to dispose of garbage in an environmentally friendly manner. By recycling and composting your trash, you will reduce the need for landfills and save money. Many cities and towns have implemented recycling, making it easy to do the right thing for the planet. Be sure to dispose of hazardous materials, such as batteries and heavy duty cleaning products, in a safe and environmentally conscious manner.Resource recovery – reducing, reusing and recycling waste is important for the environment, and it can also be profitable. It decreases the amount of waste for disposal, saves space in landfills, and conserves natural resources. It is used to dispose of solid, liquid and gaseous waste. It is recognized as a practical method of disposing of certain hazardous materials (such as biological medical waste). Incineration is a controversial method of waste disposal, due to issues such as emission of gaseous pollutants and direct effects on human health.
