The main objective of this course is to present a very detailed account on collection, treatment, and disposal of solid waste, waste water, and hazardous waste. The course will also draw attention to the improved technology on which the waste generator must rely as land becomes more limited and regulations increase. The course touches upon the causes and effects of the three basic types of waste; solid waste, waste water and hazardous waste. The treatment and reuse of water is also addressed. In the United States, the management of hazardous waste is significantly regulated. This course addresses the subjects of direct hazardous waste treatment, categoric remedial action requirements, and low level radioactive waste handling.
