Here we bring you some of the most prominent effects of environment waste. 

Water Contamination
Dumped waste in water ends up to produce negatively charged elements in water that changes the water chemical composition. 
Water pollution will negative effect environmental ecosystem that is harmful to both human and animals.

Soil contamination mostly occurs when people throw used oil and other highly sensitive contaminated waste in quarries
Atmospheric Pollution
Waste, if not properly handled can cause much land and air pollution causing several human diseases. 
Most of the breathing problems in human are due to contaminated air that they breathe. 
Formation of Leachate
Formation of liquid as stagnant trickles by external contamination is known as Leachate. 
Leachate is an immensely toxic chemical mixture causing health hazards. It can cause fatal diseases when mixed with surface water, ground water or planting soil.
