Different types of waste that must be destroyed safely and effectively and their methods of disposal include-
Garden rubbish: Compost leaves, sticks, weeds, and trimmings from shrubs and trees, if feasible. Designate a separate area for composting.
Cardboard cartons: If possible, recycle cardboard; otherwise, treat like ordinary rubbish.
Ordinary rubbish: Where municipal solid waste facilities exist, dispose of ordinary rubbish in the municipal dump. Otherwise, burn or bury it.
Human waste: Use pit latrines or other toileting facilities to dispose of all human waste.
Health care waste
Sharps waste: Single-use disposable needles, needles from auto-disable syringes, scalpel blades, disposable trocars, sharp instruments requiring disposal, and sharps waste from laboratory procedures.
Other hazardous medical waste: Waste contaminated with blood, body fluids, human tissue; compounds such as mercury; pressurized containers; and wastes with high heavy metal content.
Pharmaceuticals: Expired, damaged, or otherwise unusable medicines and items contaminated by or containing medicinal substances.
