Disposing and treating hazardous materials in a proper manner to prevent contamination of soil and groundwater
Hazardous waste is a threat to public health and the environment and particularly in industrialised countries, the amount of hazardous waste is growing. The harmful properties of waste can be found in discarded commercial products, as well as by-products from industry. When left untreated, the long-term effects of hazardous waste can cause irreparable damage to the surrounding soil and groundwater.
