ABSTRACT:
From unexpended materials, products are created wastes which get into the environment. The environment knows the great mass of wastes and can manage it, but the question is the time of this process. Nature always and at every opportunity is searching for the balance and achieves it. The degradation of some materials in nature, however, takes some 1000 years which is a very long time in terms of the length of one human life, also in view of the rising trend of wastes generation. The need for right waste management is steadily rising, as does the production of wastes and our living standards. Incorrect waste management has a negative impact on all components of the environment. Waste management, their processing and recycling bring in addition to human health protection and preserving a healthy environment, also another benefit in the form of raw materials extraction, which presents the saving of primary raw materials whose world supplies are constantly reducing. One of the possible way how effective manage waste management is environmental consciousness but the science brings different ways of solution, for example in connection of waste management and simulation of wastes flow. The paper presents one of this way by the help of creation of centralized collection point of wastes by the universal model which can be usable for different countries with the problem of wastes and waste management.
