Hazardous Waste Management (HWM) in developed and developing countries faces several challenges. Such waste requires special attention throughout all its stages of management to avoid the contamination of soil, groundwater and surface water. In this regard, the growing amount of waste generated has made it increasingly important to develop strategies to manage waste safely through accurate disposal practices. Reducing, reusing and recycling waste is the most effective way to create a safe waste management in a suitable environmentally friendly way. Therefore, every country should adopt a policy to reduce the polluted impacts on environmental and global health.
