Waste management is the handling of discarded materials. Recycling and composting, which transform waste into useful products, are forms of waste management. The management of waste also includes disposal, such as landfilling.

Waste can be almost anything, including food, leaves, newspapers, bottles, construction debris, chemicals from a factory, candy wrappers, disposable diapers, old cars, or radioactive materials. People have always produced waste, but as industry and technology have evolved and the human population has grown, waste management has become increasingly complex.

A primary objective of waste management today is to protect the public and the environment from potentially harmful effects of waste. Some waste materials are normally safe, but can become hazardous if not managed properly. For example, 1 gal (3.75 l) of used motor oil can potentially contaminate one million gallons (3,790,000 l) of drinking water.

Every individual, business or organization must make decisions and take some responsibility regarding the management of their waste. On a larger scale, government agencies at the local, state, and federal levels enact and enforce regulations governing waste management. These agencies also educate the public about proper waste management. In addition, local government agencies may provide disposal or recycling services, or they may hire or authorize private companies to perform those functions.

My name is kathi kyckelhahn and in ohio in a small town on the ohio river I became the focas of things that were to come about in phx, and during that time I fell in love with a man who I only knew as john. the town is wellsville, ohio and my name is kathi but john may have known me by my married name kathi hickin. long story short I do believe that they charged john with my murder and even though I keep contacting many justice departments and the fbi telling them that they are have made many fraudulent arrests and many fraudulent lawsuits have gone out with a network of girls that steal my identity. the old man who owns waste managment I do believe was the old guy in the trash truck that used to pull up behind a building that I stayed at in that small river town. and in that trash truck was an older guy who always pulled up when I was pissed I did not have any ciggs and he would have a newly lite cigg. but that was the game and the pastor of that building was pastor bill rudder and he is the guy that runs witness protection and he was the one that waste managment wanted to expose. and even though I have and even though I keep contacting and even starting massive investigations starting three yrs ago, the witness protection and the corrupt parts of fbi keep stealing my identity. I am the girl from ohio and I do believe that john is son of the old guy or his grandson. I have not sued him or waste management, I have never even testified but I have been horrifically victimized by this thing and all that has gone wrong. If you could see to it that this letter is gotten to the old man or that grandson or son that is named john. yes I am sure there is more then one but please it is a matter of mylife because I am getting the blame from the gotti family, the gambino family, the marino family, and armoni's sister and no matter how many times I contact different sources nothing is getting any better because not only are those families blaming me they are working with top ranking maricopa corrupt cop john morton who has stolen my identity for 5 yrs.
