    is or are

    Hello..

    which one should I use?

    Waste and water is..
    or
    Waste and water are..

    I'm unsure because both of the words are uncountable.

    With two discrete subjects: "waste" and "water", you need a plural verb.

    Depends on how it is used:

    Some things can be seen as one unit: Ham and eggs is my favorite meal.
