What does Disposal mean?

In the context of solid waste, disposal is the emplacement of waste in a suitable facility without intent to retrieve it at a later date. Retrieval may be possible but, if intended, the appropriate term is storage. Disposal may also refer to the release of airborne or liquid waste to the environment (i.e. emissions and discharges).
