Abstract

The right way of waste management has a big role in the world today when population grows, consumption is high and we deal with ecological problems. Unordered landfills are a problem of modern society because of constant threat of polluting limited water supplies, disturbing natural balance, decrease of the quality of air that we breathe and the food that we eat. Human mentality to move waste as quickly and as soon as possible has not changed, the amount of waste increases every day, and it is more varied and more dangerous every day. Recently it has become clear that landfills are not isolated islands of garbage that trouble only the ones who live next to them. It has become clear that landfills have a big impact on environment in general and that there is a correlation between settlement and the place where its waste gets disposed. All waste we dispose of is a potential ecological catastrophe when it could be the building material of the future. Soil, water and air quality, landscape beauty and economy of society depend on how it manages its waste. Recently, principles of sustainable waste management have been accepted worldwide. Land damage done to nature during centuries of inadequate waste disposal is being rectified. Recovery of unordered and unauthorized landfills plays a big role in eliminating danger and should be completed as soon as possible considering high standards of safety so that future generations do not have to worry about this threat while disposing of their waste on regulated landfills, recycle and create a better future for their children.
