Disasters and conflicts can generate large quantities of solid and liquid waste that threaten public health, hinder reconstruction and impact the environment. Disaster Waste (DW) can be generated by the actual disaster, as well as, later during the response and recovery phases. Public health risks can arise from: direct contact with waste accumulated in the streets, hazardous wastes such as asbestos, pesticides, oils and solvents, and indirectly from vectors such as flies and rodents, and from post-disaster collapse of unstable structures. Relief and reconstruction efforts can be hindered when DW blocks access to affected populations and areas. Environmental impacts, which are closely associated with human impacts, can include waterways, agricultural areas and communities contaminated by chemicals and heavy metals. Physical obstruction of waterways can also occur.
