Humans play an important role in the waste cycle, from raw material extraction and processing through product manufacturing and disposal.
Interventions in waste management should be supported by public awareness and education campaigns. Indeed, public knowledge and involvement, in addition to a proper legal framework, sufficient technical capability and assistance, and adequate funding methods, are important components in any waste management system. Waste is the product of human activity, and every person must be aware of the problems and risks associated with waste management, as well as the critical role he or she plays in turning waste into riches.
