Of all the things that people have to let go, that is the bad habit of not segregating your waste. But people can’t be blamed partly when it comes to waste segregation when they have a lot on their plate. There are ways to get it done without hustling yourself especially if the waste collector arrived to collect rubbish.
Importance of Segregation
Waste segregation is not just organizing your waste according to its type. It’s like nit-picking the most dangerous from a ‘friendly waste.’ What solid waste meant is that rubbish that can be recyclable and reused like solid waste and green waste. And being able to segregate properly is like saving the planet from pollution and greenhouse effect; one waste segregation at a time.
What Are The Wastes To Segregate?
There is a lot of waste to segregate at home. These are dry wastes, wet wastes, and e-waste. The dry waste includes plastic, bottles, paper, glass, and metals. The damp waste includes vegetable and fruit peels, meat and chicken bones, fish scales and bones. The e-waste pertains to broken appliances and no longer working electronic devices such as cameras, phones, watches, bulbs, etc.
It is essential to identify and segregate these items because some can be sold in the junkyard. You can bring them to waste depot or sell the parts of the e-waste to people who are looking for working parts. In this way, you can still earn a bit from rubbish, rather than send it all directly to the landfill.
How Waste Segregation Is Done?
When you do waste segregation correctly, you reduced the amount of waste that is being dumped in the landfill. It’s not good to leave waste rot in landfills because it is committing, to another kind of pollution, which is soil pollution. A lot of land space that can be used to grow trees and plant crops go wasted because it was reserved for dumping purposes.
So to get started with your journey to proper waste segregation, here are the tricks that you can do.
- Allocate containers where you can put your dry, wet and e-waste.
- Reuse boxes to separate paper, plastic, glass, ceramics, and e-waste.
