Hi Sekar,

The disposal channel referes to waste generated by a generator either from single source or multiple sources. Similarly, the disposal channel includes the source of generation, handling at on-site, transit storage of the waste generated, transporter, reception and disposal point. In addition to above, the regulatory legislations are piovital role in the disposal channel. In SAP, the disposal channel is widely elaborated, go thru the link.

If the waste is categorised as hazardous and then the disposal process shall be monitored more intimately keeping in view of local & international regulations to ensure approved disposal mode. The HW are disposed off by various ooptions including recycling, reuse, landfill and incineration epending upon the characterstics of the waste and its detrimental effects on the environment. The specific disposal mode is the deciding criteria for its handling, reception, transportation and finally end dispsoal. However, the imp issues in the disposal channel is type of waste generated, transportation, regulaory norms and final disposal.
