The modern civilization is now struggling with the problems of high build up of waste and its impact on the immediate and global environment. The present scenario calls for a smart handling of waste which includes processing and recycling as per the latest technology. Proper waste management helps us be protective towards the environment. In fact, due collection of waste and disposal is the key to make the global cleanliness and sustainability programmes successful. Here we are providing you four (4) speech on Waste Management to help you with this topic in your examination. Good luck! You can select any waste management speech according to your and requirement:
Speech on Waste Management
Waste Management Speech – 1
Dear All! Welcome to the school auditorium!
Before I begin my speech on waste management, please allow me to extend special thanks to our College Committee Members and Principal for always encouraging programmes based on social awareness. I sincerely hope that my fellow students would reap maximum benefits out of it by informing themselves about the burning issues of our times that our nation is grappling with and what we as the young generation of today can do to curb these escalating issues.
One such problem that has caught people’s attention in the current scenario is the ever increasing waste and our inability to deal with it. With the ever growing human population and increasing living standard of people, new settlements are seen burgeoning and industries have also been established to meet the growing human needs for survival. Of course, new agricultural methods are adopted with the help of pesticides and fertilizers for meeting the growing needs for consumption. So much other things are also practiced for a comfy living. In return, waste matter is generated from industrial and domestic activities, which is dumped into our surroundings.
Cities are now struggling with the problems of high build up of waste and its impact on our immediate and global environment. As a result, environmental pollution has come to an alarming stage where our environment is experiencing an irreparable damage. Solid and liquid wastes as well as gas particles released from the industries; run off pesticides and fertilizers from the agricultural practices as well as household sewage from urban regions have come to a point beyond disposal.
However, this problem has also given citizens an opportunity to look for solutions by involving their society and private sectors, by involving latest innovations for disposal of waste and last but not the least, involving behavioral changes and raising people’s consciousness.
It’s high time when we have to do a smart handling of “waste” and actually understand whether waste is indeed a waste or not. There is an obvious requirement for the latest waste disposal technology which is centered on municipalities and makes use of high/energy technology in order to progress towards processing and recycling of waste.
The easier waste management method would be to bring down the formation of waste materials. This way we can control the quantity of waste thrown in the landfills. You can recycle old materials for waste reduction and it can be bags, jars, repairing broken pieces rather than buying a new one, avoiding the use of disposable items, such as plastic glass and bags, putting into use second hand products and purchasing products that don’t require much designing.
Then composting is yet again a hassle-free and natural bio-degradation based process which makes use of organic waste, i.e. kitchen waste and remains of garden or plants and transforms it into nutrient-rich food for your plants. It is one of the excellent methods of waste disposal where it can transform unsafe organic items into safe compost.
Landfills are the highly sought after methods for the disposal of waste these days. Landfills are only successful where there is a lot of space and unfortunately it’s a success only in developed countries. However, it is said that landfills lead to water and air pollution and inevitably affect the environment. So besides this, you can look for other methods I have just described for waste management and protect your environment from the hazardous impact of piled up waste.
Waste Management Speech – 2
Today is the World Environment Day and our company has always emphasized on adopting environment-friendly measures and doing waste management. I would like to share some important thoughts on waste management on this occasion.
Waste disposal or waste management refers to managing the waste from its initiation to its final removal. This includes collation, transportation, processing, re-cycling and finally disposal of waste along with monitoring, regulation and control. It also covers the lawful and regulatory aspects that relates to the waste management, including the instructions and guidance on recycling and disposal of waste management, etc.
The phrase usually relates to all types of waste, whether produced during the withdrawal of raw materials, the dispensation of raw materials into final goods, consumption of final good, or other human activities such as metropolitan (institutional, residential and commercial), farming and social (household hazardous waste, health care and sewage sludge, etc.) The objective of the waste management is to minimize the hazardous effect of waste materials on health, environment or aesthetics.
The practice of waste management varies country-wise (developed and developing nations), region-wise (urban and rural area) and sector-wise (residential and industrial). While urban regions may employ advanced machines and latest technology to supervise the waste, rural areas may be more dependent upon the human labour; residential areas may utilize safe and sound process whereas industries may utilize giant machines, etc in order to control the factory waste products. The waste materials at the institutional and residential level in the metros and cities are administered by the local authorities also known as Municipal Corporation; while the management of harmless industrial and commercial waste is accomplished by the generator of those waste.
I would now like to point out the most commonly used methods for waste management:
Landfills – This is managed by throwing the daily garbage in the landfills; it is the most common method used today.
Recovery and Recycling – Through this method, the useful items from the discarded is extracted for the next use such as conversion into energy, usable heat, fuel, electricity, etc.
Combustion or Incineration – In this method, community solid wastes are burned at high temperatures in order to convert the same into gaseous products or residue.
Plasma Gasification – Plasma is a basically an electrically charged gas. In this method, the molecular bonds of the waste are broken down due to the intense heat in the container.
Waste to Energy – In this method, the non-recyclable waste materials are converted into useful electricity, heat or fuel through various processes.
Composting – It is a natural process of bio-degradation; it converts the kitchen, plant and garden waste into nutritional food for the plants.
Waste Minimization – The best method is to minimize the creation of waste products by repairing the broken utensils, avoidance of plastic bags, etc.
It is important that we are protective towards our environment and always follow the 3Rs of waste hierarchy: ‘Reduce’, ‘Re-use’ and ‘Recycle’ in order to save our environment.
Waste Management Speech – 3
Good morning respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends.
The topic allocated to me for our today’s assembly is ‘Waste Management’. We as human beings should necessarily be aware and cautious about this topic.
This term means the management of the waste. So, what exactly does waste mean? As our teacher has always taught us that waste means something that is eliminated or discarded as no longer useful or required after a stage. It is something worthless.
We as human beings should understand that everything that is called waste, involves some cost and effort of somebody or the other. We should minimize or further aim at completely eliminating the waste from our lives. Waste is both a consequence and a symptom of lives lived or things used unwisely.
Waste management is the science that deals with prevention and monitoring of wastes. Though it is a science, but it is not a difficult one. We do not need a rocket science implementation for this. It is as simple as monitoring our activities and actions so that we ultimately release the least amount of waste.
Collection of waste and disposal of rubbish plays an extremely important role in the global cleanliness and sustainability drive. Most crucial is this accompanied with people’s health and the conservation of resources being the responsibility of every government. Our government has created many garbage dumps that clearly indicate solid waste in separate box and other waste in separate box. This is deliberately done so as to make it convenient for the companies or government to get this waste recycled and ready for next use in some other form.
In earlier generations during our great great grandparent’s times, people used to dump their waste by digging a hole beneath the surface. At that point of time, this was considered the best as this could easily be decomposed and act as fertilizer of some sort. But for our generation or the coming one, this option is not at all feasible. This is so because, the population earlier was less and hence waste creation was less, also due to harsh chemicals and varied artificial products today; it is not at all easy for the waste to be decomposed.
Keeping in mind the healthy pollution free air and overall environment; we should focus on managing our waste and even monitor the activities of others so that we ensure less creation of waste.
To conclude my point of discussion; I would just request you all to please watch your actions very closely and ensure the minimal wastage. We should educate the public on the importance of conserving environment by managing solid wastes. We all have the responsibility to make people learn the impacts which one can avail as benefits through managing wastes. Please spread the message and help us save our environment. Let’s aim at complete elimination or the perfect management of waste all around.
Thank you for being a part of this discussion. Your presence encouraged me to put forward my point in the most effective way. Thank you!
Waste Management Speech – 4
Hello friends, welcome to this seminar on the occasion of the World Environment Day. It feels so good to see such a large number of enthusiastic audience. I am glad that we all are gathered here to share our views on the environmental related topics.
I chose ‘waste management’ as my topic for today’s discussion. Managing waste is, in itself, a great deed that one can do to directly contribute for the society and the mother earth. One should monitor their activities and the amount of waste produced because of those activities.
Amongst all, the companies or the industries specifically the ones that manufacture should opt for the processes or techniques that control the waste production. In order to make our surroundings and environment healthy one should manage the waste properly. Manufacturing companies should encourage the consumers or customers to bring their own reusable for packaging and also the public should be given priority to choose reusable products.
To understand it more precisely, I would say that waste management is the process of treating solid wastes. It also offers variety of solutions for recycling items that don’t belong to trash or are completely discarded and of no use. Waste management is about how garbage and waste can be used as a valuable resource for us and our future generations. Waste management disposes of the products and substances that you have used in a safe and efficient manner. Rubbish, garbage and waste can cause air and water pollution. Rotting garbage is also known to produce lot many harmful gases that mix with the air and can cause breathing problems in people.
Waste management is something that each and every household, human being and business owner in the world needs. There are many authorities that collect such waste and focus on recycling it for the betterment of the society. This is done by method of regular collections. These industries work on overall concept of waste management. It includes all amongst other things, collection, transport, treatment and disposal of waste together with monitoring and regulation. Waste can easily be converted into a reusable things by getting it recycled.
We as individuals should put in our efforts to work on waste management for the betterment of ourselves, our future generation and the overall economy. We all should understand that waste can be created by anything. It can be generated during the extraction of raw material, the processing of raw materials into intermediate and final products, the consumption of final products, or other human activities including municipal, agricultural, and social activities. And, waste management is intended to reduce adverse effects of waste on health and the environment.
To conclude my discussion, I would just like to tell you all that it is our responsibility to closely adhere each and every rule of government to control the waste and exercise waste management in an efficient way. Helping eliminate waste will add on to the environment’s health and prosperity. We as citizens of the country owe this responsibility of ensuring the proper execution of waste management.
Waste is a valuable resource that could earn the UK tens of billions of pounds, according to a new report by the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee.
The report, 'Waste or resource? Stimulating a bioeconomy', calls on the government to change the way we view waste—and see it as an opportunity rather than a problem.
A University of Nottingham academic was among the experts whose research was used to underpin the House of Lords report.
Greg Tucker, a professor of plant biochemistry, is an expert in methods used to break down organic material—like food waste and agricultural waste—to produce biofuels such as ethanol.
Professor Tucker's research on the conversion of wheat straw into ethanol features in the House of Lords report, which will be considered at the highest levels of the UK government.
Professor Tucker said: "Currently most bioethanol is derived from maize or sugar cane, but the use of waste sources such as wheat straw is much preferred as this would not compete with food production. Several groups at Nottingham have contributed their skills to the BBSRC Sustainable Bioenergy Centre (BSBEC) with a view to achieving this aim."
Energy and sustainability are priority areas of research for The University of Nottingham, with world-leading teams working in a range of fields including biofuels, bio-renewables, green chemistry, synthetic biology, low-energy buildings, carbon capture, global food security, energy storage and many others.
A £14.3m grant announced in January is being used to develop a Synthetic Biology Research Centre, which will provide new sustainable routes to important chemicals.
The funding, from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), will support the research of Professor Nigel Minton and his team in the use of synthetic biology to engineer microorganisms that can be used to manufacture greener fuels.
Professor Minton's research has also informed the work of the Lords Science and Technology Committee. He gave a presentation to the Committee in October 2013.
Developing a bioeconomy
The House of Lords report calls on the government to create a Waste Champion, to take on the job of developing a 'brass from muck' bioeconomy—one that could see major economic benefits as well as a considerable number of green jobs.
Although there are many kinds of waste generated from a variety of sources, the Lords inquiry looked specifically at waste which contains carbon, such as food waste and waste gas from factories and power stations.
Around 100 million tonnes of carbon-containing waste is available every year, and could potentially be exploited as a resource.
Using the latest technology, this type of waste can be converted into valuable products such as fuels, flavours and fragrances, plastics, paint or pharmaceuticals. The potential size of this bioeconomy, according to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, is estimated to be in the tens of billions of pounds.
For example, technology has the potential to produce, from waste, nearly 40 per cent of the petrol used in the UK. The Department for Transport estimates that this would be worth about £2.4bn.
A valuable resource
Lord Krebs, Chair of the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee, said: "Our investigation has revealed that the UK, which generates hundreds of millions of tonnes of waste every year, has the scientific know-how and the industrial will to turn this waste into wealth.
"But we are concerned that the Government is not seizing this opportunity—there is a huge amount at stake here, economically and environmentally, and no single department appears to be leading the way.
"We are calling on the Government to create a Waste Champion, a Minister who can co-ordinate action and policy across different departments so this chance is not missed. The Waste Champion should not only ensure that the UK has the ideal environment for a waste bioeconomy to flourish, but also come up with a long-term vision to maintain it.
"Our report clearly shows that where there's muck, there's brass. Waste, traditionally seen as a problem, needs to be viewed as a hugely valuable resource, one which could generate a substantial economy of its own. We must not let this opportunity pass us by."
The Science and Technology Committee has a broad remit to consider science and technology; it scrutinises Government policy by undertaking cross-departmental inquiries into a range of different activities.
