Responsibility Is The Key For Sustainability

Unfortunately, the decisions made around waste disposal are not up to you. As homeowners or just decent human beings, it is our responsibility to throw trash at the right place. There are specific designations that we need to follow, but the government is the one who will decide what will happen next. However, it does help if you already start segregating them right in your home. You can put different kinds of garbage on various bags or hire a skip bin that would make it easier.

Top 5 Methods Of Waste Disposal

  1. Collection

Simply put, this is just segregation at a broader scope done before the rest of these processes. The collector would group biodegradables as well as the non-bio ones. However, the categories would usually depend on the managing body.

Sometimes, it is kept simple, and there are only two categories, as mentioned before. However, most states would prefer having multiple types like dangerous chemicals and material, among other things.

  1. Recycling

There is another category that can pop up continuing with the segregation, and that is the recyclables. These are materials that can easily be used differently other than what it was intended to do. It is an exception because it can be done right in your home, like doing DIY projects with your supposed garbage.

However, it can also be just reused or turned into a new material that is a lower version of its previous incarnation. Equipment like skip bins can make this more accessible since it can help you categorize your soon to be disposed of materials.

  1. Landfill

This practice has been thought of as less effective because of its potential to be dangerous to the soil. It starts with choosing the right piece of land to house all of the waste. However, there has been a lot of development in this process to make it more suitable for the environment. Some countries have opted to treat it first before storing them in the allotted land areas.

  1. Incineration or Burning

Another popular way of waste disposal is by burning it in a unique enclosed space or machine. Usually, the ones that undergo this process can quickly burn substances like wood and other plant-based byproducts. As it burns, it creates energy that can be reused to generate power by converting heat to electrical energy. This is the process for biomass-fueled power plants, although this is still in its infancy.

  1. Chemical Treatment

This is also a common practice for many countries, especially in those places that do not have many land areas for storage. Chemical or biological treatment aims to remove any harmful substances in the waste and try to reuse the remaining material for something else. This way, it is easier to store, and you have another batch of compounds that can be reused in other processes like incineration.
