incinerator.
lack of operational procedures and environmental control on the landfill operation
Infectious and medical waste

in some private clinics
Open dumping
main waste disposal practice in Thailand
low cost

we generate around 38170 tons of waste per day
Sanitary Land Fill
final dumping place for waste that cannot be recycled or transformed
Material Recovery Facility
sorting recyclable waste
waste transformation
turning waste into energy
Biogas
(landfill)
HEAT
(incineration)
42% of those are organic waste
72%
minimal waste management
effect of defective environmental management
air soil pollution
