(Q. 1 - 8 ) Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow.
One winter day in 1972 a Danish tanker truck loaded with phenol, a corrosive acidic compound, spun out of control and turned over. Its poisonous cargo spread into a stream, killing fish and jeopardizing the water supply of a nearby village. After cleaning up the spill, government officials hammered out new safety measures for the transport of dangerous substances. While other nations rely on special dump sites, Denmark, a small country which depends on ground water for drinking, took steps to deal with the problem closer to its source. Each company in this northern European nation must disclose to the local municipality the types and quantities of waste it produces. The town issues a permit for on-site treatment or recycling, or the company delivers its hazardous wastes, carefully separated and labeled, to one of 21 transfer stations. These facilities transport 1,78,000 tonnes of wastes annually by rail, truck or barge to a central treatment plant.
Each Danish municipality also has its own chemicals collection station for household wastes.
Participation is voluntary, but by making drop offs convenient, Denmark reduces the temptation for home owners to dump their cleaning agents, used motor oil and garden pesticides down the nearest drain.
Today, Denmark has one of the most comprehensive hazardous waste management systems. Other nations are beginning to catch up with the Danish insight that efficiency is served and safety enhanced by dealing with problems closer to their source.
