Abstract

Dumping of waste is one of the harmful activities impacting negatively on the environment. While it may be impossible to stop the dumping of waste by humans in entirety, it is possible to control and contain the act of dumping of waste through appropriate legal mechanisms put in place for such purpose. It is the right of everyone to seek an environment that is clean and not harmful and various environmental regulations in several countries recognise this. The paper looks at waste control from the perspectives of South Africa, India and the United Kingdom and analyses them in order to draw insightful lessons on how best to control waste.
