Storage is the initial stage immediately after waste generation and collection. Storage can also be made after collection before final disposal or recycle/reuse. In residential neighbourhood solid waste collection frequency may vary from twice a day for a wealthy neighbourhood to once a week for a poor neighbourhood.
