Recycling is the term used to describe an alternative form of getting rid of used materials. Instead of putting used materials in a landfill, it is processed and made into new items. Through recycling it is possible to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills and it also helps to bring prices down on items that are made form using recycled waste. You can make an impact by recycling garbage with almost anything. Recycling has expanded and grown to allow for everything from paper to plastic to batteries to be recycled and made into something useful again. Recycling Garbage can produce many different new items.
Recycling is not a new concept, but initiating it into modern society took some time. In the past people would simply discard everything without thought of recycling. Now most people recycle in one way or another. Some people may not even realize they are recycling. Have you ever reused a plastic container? If so, then you have recycled. It is contagious and smart. Recycling makes the world a better place. It is helping to cut down on pollution and just making this world a little greener.
RECYCLABLE MATERIAL WILL BE COLLECTED AT THE SAME TIME AS GARBAGE.
What are household hazardous wastes?
Items such as: flammable liquids, oil-based paints, solvents, varnishes, thinners, reactives (typically pool chemicals), fluorescent bulbs, computers, household batteries, acids & bases, old gasoline, pesticides & herbicides, cleaners, aerosols, poisons and antifreeze.
Recycling involves processing used materials (waste) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production. Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" waste hierarchy.
A number of different systems have been implemented to collect recyclates from the general waste stream. These systems lie along the spectrum of trade-off between public convenience and government ease and expense. The three main categories of collection are "drop-off centres", "buy-back centres" and "curbside collection".
These days, the problem of waste management has become critical. We generate a lot of waste everyday,
and we are short of dumping grounds. Well, let’s try preventing at least the degradable waste. We have a solution for that. We can convert certain BIO-WASTE to fertilizer.
Steps to follow
A set of simple steps :
1. Initially, put first layer of fresh leaves and one inch
layer of BC over that. Now put the garbage spread
2. Put BC in garbage almost one-third of garbage
quantity and mix well.
3. Cut garbage in medium / small pieces to ensure fast
4. Keep on adding garbage and bio-culture in layers. Keep stirring to ensure proper mixing
5. Keep the mixture bit moist if it becomes dry, by sprinkling water.
Bio-fertilizer will always be a best option for betterment of our
plants. The same can be used as bio-culture to turn new garbage in fertilizer. So, everyday, we can save about 1kg of degradable waste. We can save our earth, if we start it from now.
