Waste and Chemicals-PMNH
Household and industrial wastes pose health risks to local populations and contribute to global warming. Extreme weather events can exacerbate these risks when wind and water spread waste throughout the environment. Waste reduction, the clean-up of industrial waste, wastewater treatment and better controls for waste dumps all contribute to risk reduction.
