Proper Garbage Disposal

Updated on September 13, 2012

Garbage. The more we consume, the more trash that we will have. But how can we solve the problems regarding this kind of matter? Is it Serious? Ok now listen.

After we have thrown our trash in our garbage cans, do you know where it will be going? Your garbage doesn't just disappear like a magic in your garbage bins or disintegrate without leaving a trace. After it will be collected, it will be going to find its new home, the Landfills. But does burrying our garbage can solve the problem? The fact that landfill has somewhat helped us managed our trashes, it also brought a new problems relating to environmental hazards. One of it concerns about contaminating our water resources it may be underground or at the surface so diseases may brought up. Bottomline is, it's all caused by garbage

So how can we able to manage and do our part as a citizen of our country to lessen our garbage problem?

What Can I do?

  • Recycle. In our place, we sell all our paper trash so that it will be recycled. And we sell also our plastics for recycling
  • Compost your kitchen wastes. Then you can use the soil for planting. Dont burn it, it may add up carbon dioide emission.
  • Do not throw away your dead batteries, metals, bulbs because there may be some hazardous chemical that are dangerous to our health. Hand it to some facilites which can recycle them.
  • Don't throw your trash everywhere, it may cause some flood. This one is applicable to our place. I think many flood cases here in our country are related to improper garbage disposal.
  • Segregate your garbages.
  • Propagate the news. In this way, its not only you can help change and solve our problems.

Help save our environment. So that we can live a healthy and happy life in the future.

Do you want to live in a self sustaining house?  Where you can live healthy and happy?

      I've retired from teaching but not after I had influenced my pupils in adopting this eco-friendly habit: the 3 R's. No, it's not confined to the basics of 'reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic. It went beyond Reduce, Recycle, Reuse of our daily household garbage to help minimize "smokey mountains" everywhere especially in school grounds.

      Garbage disposal is a big problem. It really takes cooperation from individuals in the community for it's unwanted effects to be abated. May I also add that we should reuse many of the things that we have like glass bottles, eco-friendly plastic containers to lessen trash, it also helps us save some.
