Waste - Why care? (Finland)
It is important to reduce soil, water and air pollution and the potential health hazards caused by waste. Waste can also be detrimental to the use of environment and deteriorate the landscape. The increasing trend towards the reuse and recycling of waste is positive. In Finland, there is a possibility that the amount of waste incinerated will increase, making it even more important to find more effective methods of waste management.
