Digitalization has led us to improve a lot of areas in our lives from economy to medicine. However, there is more to improve with technology. When we think about the areas to enhance, we can directly recognize hazardous waste management as one of them which is a crucial issue for a lot of individuals or countries in order to achieve a better environment for all. The future is here: The digitized hazardous waste management.

Hazardous waste is everywhere and it is increasing! We can observe in a lot of waste areas, they include hazardous waste as one of the types of these areas. Here you can see some of the areas that consist of hazardous waste.

What Is Household Hazardous Waste?

When hazardous waste management is mentioned as an important topic for all, many people might think that it is crucial yet it is not related to them since they are households. However, we can say that there are many types of hazardous waste which can also be produced by households. We are calling this type as household hazardous waste.

When we mention household hazardous waste we talk about products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides can contain hazardous ingredients and require special care when you dispose of them. The important part here for us to pay attention is that the disposal process for these wastes is complex so we need to realize it properly. We need to read carefully the directions for disposal on labels of these products and act in accordingly with them.

What Is Medical Waste?

This waste type can be considered as the byproduct of any healthcare work such as doctor’s surgeries, dentists, hospitals and laboratories. This type of waste might be infectious and is toxic for the environment and also for the people that is why it is crucial to separate different types of medical waste properly.

What Is Chemical Waste?

This waste type includes harmful chemical parts for the workers and environment. Labeling, storing and packaging of these wastes are crucial. Chemicals should be classified carefully and all processes should be tracked properly in order to prevent any harm for workers and environment. 

Hazardous Waste Management

We can say that a lot of careful operations are done for the management of hazardous waste. Firstly, in order to decrease the amount and the danger of the hazardous waste, reducing and recycling are being applied. However, these processes might not be enough for the disposal of the hazardous waste. Therefore, more methods such as treatment, storage or disposal. We can observe clearly that these processes are highly complex and tracked very closely by regulations. These regulations require a high amount of documentation and proper reporting Moreover, the need for transparency in these processes and data management is very important.

What We Can Do Here?

As a result of the things we mentioned before, we can understand that all of the types of hazardous waste are dangerous for people and the environment. We need to decrease the danger here however the processes are complex. Furthermore, the hazardous waste that is produced is not expected to be decreased due to industrialization. In order to ease the complexity and efficient management, we need the help of digitalization. 

Digitalization helps us to manage all the long and complex processes easily and efficiently. By using it, we can sustain better data gathering, tracking, controlling and reporting in these processes. We can use RFID, GPRS and IoT technologies and support all points starting from collection until disposal. Integration of all technologies will make our processes more effective and also it will help to decrease the errors or ease the detection of the problem to find the solutions rapidly.
