FREE PREVIEW

Biodegradable waste can be broken down into natural resources; non-biodegradable waste cannot. Municipal waste comes from schools, homes, and institutions while industrial waste is the byproduct of manufacturing. Hazardous waste is dangerous to the environment.

Recycle and Reuse (05:43)

Water reclamation and reuse reduces the amount of wastewater that must go through treatment plants. Recycling uses a large amount of energy and communities are looking into reuse to reduce requirements. Green waste can be used for compost.

Waste Management (07:43)

Chicago once dumped large amounts of waste into the Chicago River, which polluted drinking water in Lake Michigan. A sewage treatment plant opened in the 1930s, but residents are still working to clean the river. A poor neighborhood in Chicago had high levels of lead in their water.
