Hello there, it’s been a while, anyway I guess we’ve all been busy well let’s get down to business, I will be discussing about Waste Management Business. If you missed any of my previous posts, you can read them from the archives, the last post i created was Plantain Chips Business, you can read it up if you’ve not done that already.
Waste Management Business is basically collecting, transporting and either disposing or processing it. It’s a term that refers to materials produced by human activity and the process is done to reduce the effect of the waste on human health and the environment.
I’m going to be focusing on the waste disposal here and the different means of waste disposal are
Incineration– This is the method in which the waste materials are subjected to combustion (burning) and converting them to gaseous and residue products. This is probably the best way of disposing of waste materials.
Landfill– This method involves burying the waste in a well dug pit, the only problem with this type of method is that a poorly designed or managed landfill can cause a number of environmental impacts like wind-blown litter, attraction of vermin, and production of gas. This gas can create odor problems, kill surface vegetation, but if well-managed and designed all these can be controlled.
Recycling– This method simply means the collection of the waste materials and reusing them examples of commonly reused waste materials include beverage bottles, these materials can be reprocessed into new products.
Energy Recovery– The energy content of waste materials can be used directly by using them as combustion fuel or indirectly by processing them into another type of fuel. Thermal treatment can use waste material as a fuel source for cooking or heating.
That said, to go into a waste management business all you need to do is to choose your method of waste disposal that suits you, get a truck for the waste collection then register homes to collect their wastes and they pay you at the end of the month, you can start from your neighbourhood, this can be a very lucrative business especially if you live in the urban areas as no one in these times likes leaving waste or refuse laying around.
You provide each house registered with you a waste bin for a fee, which is normally kept outside the gate of the house for easy accessibility when you come to collect the waste , note you do not have to do the job yourself you can employ hands to do the collection and disposal for you, yours is just to supervise the job and make sure the waste materials are collected weekly or at the right time you agreed with your customers then at the end of the month when you are paid by your customers you pay your staffs too.
