Answer: 

Other than incineration, the best waste management plan for non-recyclable, non-compostable waste is reuse.  The percentage of our garbage that is non-recyclable and non-compostable is very small, yet, our garbage is not properly disposed of.  In the United States, we only recycle about 30% of our waste even though 75% is recyclable.  There have been a number of solutions proposed to help solve this waste sorting issue.  The organization, Hand in Hand, has come up with a proposal to solve the Municipal Solid Waste issue in India while simultaneously employment conditions for economically disadvantaged communities.  The plan mostly calls for increased sorting of compostable materials, recyclable materials, and reusable materials.
