Rapid increases in the volume and variety of solid and hazardous waste as a result of continuous economic growth, urbanization, and industrialization are a burgeoning problem for national and local governments, which must ensure effective and sustainable management of waste [1]. Between 2007 and 2011, global generation of municipal waste has been estimated to have risen by 37.3%, equivalent to roughly an 8% increase per year [1]. The EU has estimated that its 25 member states produce 700 million tons of agricultural waste annually [1].
