Environmental Sanitation means :

SDABC2015.png The ABC for Sustainable Cities - A glossary for policy makers. 1st edition (2015)

Environmental Sanitation means a wide range of interventions designed to create and maintain an environment conducive to human health. This includes sanitation (defined as the infrastructure and services required for the safe management of human excreta) but also includes solid waste management, drainage of surface water and sullage, vector control, air pollution control, etc. (Greywater or sullage is defined as wastewater generated from plates and wash-hand basins, showers and baths, which, because it is nearly as clean as potable water, can be recycled onsite for uses such as toilet flushing, landscape irrigation and constructed wetlands. Greywater often also includes wastewater from clothes washing machines and sometimes include discharge from dishwashers and kitchen sinks.)
