Sanitation is the term given for processes completed in the aid of increasing hygiene. This is generally done by minimizing or preventing human contact with hazardous materials and/or waste. Such hazards can include physical, microbiological, biological or chemical agents that can increase the risk of disease.

In most cases, sanitation refers to the given facilities for the disposal of human biological waste. It can also refer to the upkeep of hygienic conditions where necessary, such as waste collection and the disposal of wastewater. Simple, everyday hygienic processes such as washing hands are also forms of sanitation.

Basic sanitation refers to the common management of human feces at home. On-site sanitation is the term given to the sanitation of waste product on-site where the waste has been deposited. Food sanitation is the common methods for minimizing unfriendly bacteria in places where food and drink are prepared and/or served. Environmental sanitation describes the methods used in attempt to minimize environmental factors that are linked to disease (such as the treatment of water). Ecological sanitation is a method used in attempt to recreate natural processes where nutrients, etc are recycled from human waste.

The causes of poor sanitation can differ depending upon the situation, place, facilities available, personal habits of people involved, etc. Such examples can include the lack of proper human waste disposal facilities used to minimize human contact with the waste in many third world countries, a member of staff at a restaurant that does not regularly wash their hands, improper water sanitation facilities being used, etc.
