I adopted this guide because along with shelter, electricity and clean water, sanitary living conditions are basic to human health, especially in increasingly congested urban areas. I believe that responsible and ethical waste disposal is essential to maintaining the sustainability of urban life.

Bright Hub Guide to Reducing, Reusing and Recycling Waste

Calgary NW Landfill - 3 -- D=Arcy Norman

The days when waste was something humans blithely threw "away" are long gone. This guide to Waste features the newest, most popular and some of the most informative articles on Bright Hub concerning how to deal with the growing problem of waste. Several articles in the guide focus on especially challenging issues such as ethical and sustainable disposal of electronic and nuclear waste and finding alternatives to landfills. We'll also address the process of using waste from landfills and incinerators to generate power through waste-to-power facilities, including a feature for pet lovers on how to put pet waste to work as an alternative energy source.
