The cell membrane allows nutrients into the cell via either passive transport, active transport or endocytosis. The process of releasing waste products is exocytosis instead of endocytosis.

There are only a few ways substances can cross the cell membrane: simple diffusion, facilitated diffusion (using carrier or channel proteins), active transport, and endocytosis/exocytosis. Have a read about these mechanisms and when each one is used. It’s all to do with the size and charge of the substance; small, non-polar substances can diffuse across the membrane easily while large, charged substances do not and require other methods such as facilitated diffusion or active transport.
