Today we are going to talk about community waste!
Community waste is non-hazardous waste generated from households. Community waste is generated from many other sources including construction sites, street waste, and facilities in the town!
Some examples of community waste include lawn cuttings, clippings from bushes and shrubs, leaves, sweepings from yards, tin cans, boiler ashes, newspapers, magazines, etc. In most cities, there is a community waste collection center where all of the town’s waste is collected and recycled using many processes such as incineration!
We need to work towards achieving Zero Waste. According to EPA, Zero Waste is nothing but the conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products, packaging, and materials without burning and with no discharges to land, water, or air that threaten the environment or human health.
To achieve this, Education plays an important role. We need to bring awareness to as many people as possible and that’s the only way to tackle this Waste problem.
Please make sure that you properly recycle your waste and try to bring the change to your home by making it a Zero Waste House. Let’s begin the change and make a difference to our Mother Earth 🌍 to make it a better place to live for our future generations.
