A thorough consideration of Pollution Disposal methods is critical to a successful completion of your project. Once the material has been recovered viaenvironmental dredging, vacuum system, skimmer , trash harvester or other recovery method then it should be disposed of in the most environmentally beneficial method.
To locate a recycler for disposal whether it's Oil Waste, trash or contaminated sediments, which have been recovered from you storm water system, job site or from an accidental oil spill , enter in your zip code and you will be directed to the nearest resource center.
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was enacted by Congress in 1976 and amended in 1984. The act's primary goal is to protect human health and the environment from the potential hazards of waste pollution disposal. In addition, RCRA calls for conservation of energy and natural resources, reduction in waste generated, and environmentally sound waste management practices.
A good way to go about this is considering implementing the following best management practices;
Source Reduction is quite difficult and requires the altering of a design, manufacture, or intended use for products and materials. This in turn reduces the amount and toxicity of what gets thrown away and needs to be sent to a MSW.
Recycling diverts items, such as paper, glass, plastic, and metals, from the waste stream. These materials are sorted and re-worked into useful materials again, hence reducing waste and negative impact on the environment.
Composting decomposes organic waste, such as food scraps and yard trimmings, with microorganisms (mainly bacteria and fungi), producing a humus-like substance which is then used again as fertilizers. This will link you to some of EPA's major MSW programs, broad subject areas such as source reduction, recycling, and landfills, and specific topics such as tires and disaster debris.
Some other industry practices that address those materials that require secure pollution disposal;
Landfills are engineered areas where waste is placed. Landfills usually have liner systems manufactured from geosynsthetics and other safeguards, to prevent groundwater contamination. Contaminated sediments and materials are often placed in secure rail car gondola liners and sent via rail car or trucked to Hazardous waste landfills. Material is often capped and engineered landfill covers are placed over them to trap and control any gasses.
Combustion or incineration is another Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) practice that has helped reduce the amount of landfill space needed. Combustion facilities burn MSW at a high temperature, reducing waste volume,generating electricity and providing heat.
A very well publicized used of incineration is the proposed Hudson River PCB remediation project. This will implement the use of high temp incineration to re mediate PCB contaminated soil.
Information about the Hudson River Pollution Disposal and remediation program can be found by following this link.
Some smaller portable incinerators have been developed and are used extensively on job sites and abroad on relief work, small hospitals and clinics (sharps destruction), or trash and waste disposal.
As you can see there are many sound methods to deal with recovered pollution and pollution disposal can be accomplished in a ecologically and financially sensible way.
