Term Definition

A collection of unwanted items, rubbish and food waste that must be disposed of in some way. Garbage comes from homes, businesses, schools and government agencies. It is typically disposed of in some sort of receptacle, like a trash can or a dumpster, until it is collected by a professional waste management service. Some types of garbage, like hazardous waste, must be disposed of using very specific methods and are best handled by waste professionals.
