  Solid waste impacts on human health

Perhaps the most important factor why we need solid waste to be managed wisely is the impact it can cause to human health. Generating waste as much as possible without practising waste prevention and minimization culture will only allows more landfills and incinerator to be build. Potential health effects such as birth defects, asthmas, respiratory disease, cancer and birth disease (www.defra.gov.uk) are to happen if we fail take an action to prevent and minimise waste at the source.
