What is Waste Segregation?
Segregation of our waste is essential as the amount of waste being generated today caused immense problem. There are certain items are not Bio Degradable but can be reused or recycled in fact it is believed that a larger portion of the waste can be recycled, a part of can be converted to compost, and only a smaller portion of it is real waste that has no use and has to be discarded.
Household waste should be separated daily into different dustbins for the different categories of waste such as Wet & Dry Waste which should be disposed of separately.
Wet wastes, which consist of leftover foodstuff, vegetables, peels etc. should be put in a organic waste converter -My Green Bin and compost can be used as manure in the garden.
Dry waste consisting of cans, aluminum foils, plastics, metal, glass and paper could be recycled.
One should also keep a dustbin for toxic wastes such as medicines, batteries, dried paints, old bulbs and dried shoe polish.
If we do not dispose of the waste in a systematic manner than more than 1400 sq. km of land which the size of the city of Delhi would be required in the country by the year 2047 to dispose of it.
