Once signing into law the envisaged Pollution Control and Waste Management Act would be a major step towards ensuring a more effective instrument drawing together the waste management and pollution control functions from all ministries involved.

    Environmental impacts. Disposing of waste has huge environmental impacts and can cause serious problems. In the UK much is buried in landfill sites – holes in the ground, sometimes old quarries, sometimes specially dug. Some waste will eventually rot, but not all, and in the process it may smell, or generate methane gas, which is explosive. The Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal makes no attempt to provide a definite definition to hazardous wastes [14], it just states that: wastes to be categorized hazardous are “Wastes that are defined as, or are considered to be, hazardous wastes by domestic legislations”.
