WHAT IS HOUSEHOLD WASTE?
Dec 17, 2018

Household Waste, also known as domestic waste or residential waste, is refuse generated by households. Non-hazardous waste is often made up of food scraps, newspapers, bottles, cans, etc. and parts of it that can be recycled.


Refuse from households can also include some forms of hazardous waste and can originate from household cleaners, batteries, or oils. These types of waste need to be handled in a safe manner to ensure that they will not find their way into the environment and become a threat to both humans and animals.
