You have likely heard the term, "Special waste" before and may have wondered what it meant. Special waste consists of things that cannot be placed in just any ordinary landfill or garbage without consideration due to its hazardous elements. These items can often be found in the household, garage and workplace. Waste doesn't always consist of wrappers, paper, plastic, cardboard and food which are common waste items that come from your household.

Until recently most companies have not paid a lot of attention to disposing waste or waste reduction. In the past it was fairly easy and cheap to dispose of waste.

At the risk of sounding obvious, liquid waste is all waste that exists as a liquid rather than either a gas or a solid. Since the term encompasses all waste in liquid form, it includes both waste produced as a liquid and waste that has been converted into a liquid for handling. Similarly, it includes both liquid waste that emerges from a single source such as industrial wastes being pumped out through pipes and liquid waste that has no single source such as run-off caused by rainfall. Other common examples of liquid waste include both human and animal excreta plus household wastewater coming from bathing, dishwashing, and a range of other domestic activities.
Industrial waste is simply a catchall term for the undesired by-products of industrial activities such as mining and manufacturing.
