General Waste Disposal

General waste incorporates a wide range of materials that should be collected and disposed of by professionals. There are 3 main methods for general waste management – landfills, incinerators, and recycling. Landfills are the most common method, but cause contamination to the soil, water, and air. Incineration reduces the accumulation of trash but can release harmful gases in the burning process.

Reducing waste and recycling whenever possible are highly encouraged. Shred Nations can help you build a waste management system to include sustainable practices and general waste removal. Contact us to begin today.
