Waste Disposal

Solid Waste Management in Germany, Japan, Korea, United States & Mexico

With the improvement of economy and the increasing of people’s environmental awareness, more and more countries are paying more and more attention to garbage problems. Therefore, the garbage management is particular important. In general, the management of municipal solid waste mainly consists of three components: waste separation, collection and disposal.

Waste Disposal
Waste Collection, Recycling & Disposal

As we all know, garbage is mainly divided into four categories: recyclable garbage, food waste, hazardous waste and other garbage. The immature garbage classification makes the current garbage collection method mainly focus on mixed collection. The mixed collection means that a variety of municipal solid waste is mixed together and collected without any treatment. Its advantages and disadvantages are both obvious.

Advantages and disadvantages of mixed waste collection

Advantages Disadvantages
1. It does not need all the people to participate in garbage classification, to facilitate the garbage output; 1. Increased the difficulty of garbage disposal;
2. A variety of garbage is mixed together, focused and convenient; 2. Reduce the purity and reusing value of useful resources in rubbish;
3. No time limit, the garbage can be dumped at any time. 3. Increase the follow-up sorting for handling waste.

The scientific classification of waste is the basis of garbage reduction, harmless, and resource processing. Mix is rubbish, separate is the resource. In some countries, classification of trash started late, and the public garbage classification awareness is still relatively weak. As a result, the garbage separation has just started. But the developed countries garbage sorting started early, so the classification of trash is very fine, in place. The following table lists the garbage classification practices in some of the developed countries.

Principle of waste sorting in foreign countries

Waste sorting science experiment

1. Announcement of “garbage removal schedule” and “garbage classification” at the beginning of each year;

2. Domestic waste is divided into four categories: household waste, plastic packaging garbage, paper waste, biological waste. For example: glass bottles and electronic waste need to be treated separately; paper towels belong to biological waste rather than paper.


Sorting of waste to extreme

1. Trash sorting laws and regulations are complete;

2. The main responsibility involved in garbage treatment is clear;

3.  People’s awareness of environmental protection and garbage segregation is high; the garbage problem is included in the primary and secondary education;

4. Government propaganda in place: solid waste sorting is included into all aspects of life, well-known.


Garbage “lose weight” by charges

1. Sorting of kitchen waste and general waste;

2. Charge for the food waste by amount,

United states

“3R Principles”

1. Citizen are familiar with the “3R” principles: reduce, reuse, recycle;

Make full use of market power: according to statistics: in 2011, the recycling of waste plastic materials in United States is more than 135 million tons; the relevant industries provide 460,000 jobs, resulting in comprehensive economic benefits of 87 billion US dollars;

3. Match the city planning and garbage disposal;


Included scavengers

1. In view of the large number of people in Mexico City who are living on garbage recycling and collection, the Government has now incorporated these persons into the refuse collection system when the Government promotes waste separation;

2. Re-use of garbage about 3,000 tons per day.

These countries have a relatively complete garbage disposal program, and the garbage can be disposed and recycled in Apple pie order. In the other countries, most of the governments gradually pay attention to the solid waste processing, and also consciously control the waste disposal in the pilot cities. However, the lack of mandatory, national, clear mandate of the garbage classification management system makes the garbage recycling difficult. The establishment of waste recycling system requires a particular rule to be bound.

Weakness of garbage disposal policy in some countries

1. Lack of a comprehensive law: the convergence of the basic laws, specific laws and regulations of garbage classification;

2. Lack of sound supporting laws and regulations & local laws and regulations: different garbage should be treated differently;

3. Lack of practicality: such as the municipal solid waste sorting mentioned in “municipal solid waste management approach” does not specify how to classify.
