What is the impact of waste material on the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are so many different kinds of waste, all of which affect the environment in different ways. Solid wastes like plastics, trash, and even biological waste will sit in landfills, create decomposition gases, and choke animals, while liquid and water soluble wastes can poison wells and aquifers.

    I hope this helped!

    Toxic waste contains chemicals, heavy metals, radiation, harmful pathogens, or other toxins. Heavy metals can’t be filtered out of your blood stream through natural processes. Radiation causes mutations in DNA which are most likely harmful. Many chemicals, if ingested, will make you sick or kill you. Basically, everything that is harmful for humans is harmful for the environment. It will affect animals and plants the same way it does humans. Not only that, but once enough of it builds up, it will start harming humans all around the world.
