Waste management is the collection, transport, processing or disposal, managing and monitoring of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and the process is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics. Waste management is a distinct practice from resource recovery which focuses on delaying the rate of consumption of natural resources. The management of wastes treats all materials as a single class, whether solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive substances, and tried to reduce the harmful environmental impacts of each through different methods.
Waste management practices differ for developed and developing nations, for urban and rural areas, and for residential and industrial producers. Management for non-hazardous waste residential and institutional waste in metropolitan areas is usually the responsibility of local government authorities, while management for non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste is usually the responsibility of the generator.
Waste collection methods vary widely among different countries and regions. Domestic waste collection services are often provided by local government authorities, or by private companies in the industry. Some areas, especially those in less developed countries, do not have a formal waste-collection system. Disposing of waste in an environmentally-friendly manner is crucial the long term survival of any society.

Our search for answers continues this week as we explore endless possibilities for the President’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative. Last week we looked at the U.S. Department of Education as a self-proclaimed lead agency for interagency efforts on behalf of historically disadvantaged children. We also looked into a federal Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs that’s been spewing policies and perpetuating programs that may be inconsistent with the president’s agenda. We asked ourselves, now we ask you, if the Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs is working, why would the President need to create My Brother’s Keeper? Join us as American Mentors look to the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Homeland Security and the President's Council of Economic Advisers for some answers on economic security and some unconventional insight on the threat from toxic waste.
In this show you’ll learn:

Creating and maintaining a Championship Psychology is paramount to dramatic growth and success no matter how you define it. When we look at Olympians, we know the high standards they commit to in order to qualify for the few spots available to compete. Also, they have to set a gold metal standard, and the necessary rituals that are required to consistently meet and OWN that standard. We admire them and sometimes even idolize them, but what is really amazing is not their strength, speed or agility, it is their commitment.
So the question becomes, are you ready to make the commitment to have a gold medal standard in your life and in your business? Are you prepared to be an Olympian in your field? In your life? Those of you that have been listening to my show for a while now have already heard about the 10 elements of productivity. Championship Psychology is based on Purpose, Language, Focus, and Physiology. In the past I have been honored to welcome four amazing experts in each of these areas. Today, Dr. Thomas Duncan M.D. will be joining us again to explore even deeper into Championship Psychology with a discussion on Trigger Management.
