Ways of waste disposal

How much waste do you generate in a day? So, how do you dispose them? Do you have ways on how to minimize the amount of waste at home? You might not be aware about how much waste you are disposing every day. To help you manage your waste at home, we have here some ways for you to try.

  • Recycling

You can reduce waste through recycling. You can do this by sorting out your waste such as, glass, plastic, paper and aluminum. If you can have a separate container for each type of waste, then it would be easier to recycle them.

If you have glass containers, then you may use them to store foods. In such way, you do not need to simply keep the glass container. You may use it in a more resourceful way.

You may also use plastic containers for your garden. It can be a good alternative for your flower pots. You may cut the plastic bottles and use it in any way you want to. You may even use them as a material for your crafts.

If you can’t think of ways on how to reuse those wastes, then all you need is to send them to garbage collectors or landfills. They can send them to factories and do the recycling for you. In such way, the factories can reduce the cost of buying raw materials for their plastic containers.

  • Composting

Pretty sure that you have food scraps in the kitchen. Why don’t you make a small compost pit for those food scraps? This is even a better way of keeping the kitchen clean. And then, a good way for you to use fertilizers.

Economical Tip

Do you know that aside from managing your waste properly, you may also earn some dime? You just need to collect plastic, glass or bottles and paper. You may sell these wastes to junk shops, who sells bulk of junks to factories, who will recycle the wastes.

You might be thinking that it will take time to collect much to sell. But, it doesn’t matter because you are actually reducing waste and saving at the same time. Imagine, if you are going to sell just a piece of junk, then you will earn a very small money. But, selling the junks in bulk will also give you a bunch of dime. Just be patient and wait till junk turns out into money.
