2.6.2  Pollution control

Pollution prevention through various applicable principles and methods is not always possible and the consequence is that some pollution is produced. If pollution is produced, there should be some measures to control it and minimise the effects on people and the environment. The application of waste treatment before disposal, restricting contact between the waste and the public, and monitoring and evaluating the effect of the waste on the immediate environment are some of the intervention options in waste control. Pollution control options will be explored later in this Module.
