Environmental Waste Management

My Distance Learning College

Description

Man is a product of nature, and like all the other creatures he has to abide by nature's rules. However, so dramatic have been the technological advances and discoveries of the last few centuries, that man's relationship with the natural world has undergone profound, and in many cases, dangerous changes.

How we manage our waste and control substances and items that we consider to just be "rubbish" is a critical factor in the way we need to protect our environment and ensure a quality of life for us and our family.

This course deals mainly with the management of waste. However, waste cannot be looked upon as a separate issue to the conservation of the environment.

This course covers:

  • Conservation and Waste
  • Domestic Waste
  • Street Cleaning and the Disposal of Refuse
  • The Effects of Industry on the Environment
  • Nuclear Fuel and Waste
  • Water and its Treatment
  • Waste and Recycling
