One of the major contributors of rubbish in our society is our humble abode. A single household can produce lots of waste with a strong intention to keep it clean and safe. Disposing of can be attractive to the point that we carelessly dump all waste into the bin. While it is true that we need to tidy our place, we also need to be conscious of how we throw our waste or else they’ll gather in the landfills. If all of them will end up in one place alone, the things that could have been reused are already dumped; and worse the things that should be treated in a specific facility due to its hazardous substances have already contaminated the soil, causing more problems on the trees that depend on it and water that passes through it.

Knowing what type of rubbish, they are will give us an idea of how to dispose of them properly so we won’t harm the environment. These are the 3 types of rubbish we all should be aware of.

Liquid rubbish

This is the kind of waste that we less likely throw to the bin, instead, we use the sink and other drainages due to its form. Examples of this include waste detergent, dirty water, and wash water. Most often than not, we forget to dispose of liquids found in meals; those thick sauces and condiments go straight to the bins. They moisten all of the items inside, hence contributing bacterial growth to the already rubbish items.

As homeowners, we have to be conscious of the functionality of our drainage system. We have to make sure that all the pipes are secured. Think of these efforts as synonymous to proper liquid waste disposal. Our sewage shall take good care of this type of waste.

Plastic rubbish

This material is one of the many results of mankind’s technological advancements. We use plastic at almost every hour, be it for work or for personal use. We usually see them as containers of our favorite food and drinks. Along with its convenience, plastics brings a truthful negative side to it. Majority of the plastics we know are of single use only. They could no longer be used for the second try. Chances are, they will reach finality at landfills where they will not be treated properly.

In your spring cleaning (or just any ordinary form of cleaning), gather all of your single-use plastics, wash all of them (make them free from any residue), and surrender to your nearest plastic rubbish facility. They will convert your trash into something useful. Also, you can control your plastic consumption. Instead of using plastic cups for your iced lattes, you can ask your local barista to use your own tumbler.

Organic rubbish

The third type of rubbish we should all be aware of is organic. This is a common sight to our household. Trashes that fall into this category are table scraps; garden waste; rotten meat; and manure. A universal characteristic of this type is its foul smell (or in the case of table scraps, it’s a possibility to have a foul smell). A facility that can best utilize is the one that can convert them into great use like fertilizers (since they are packed with microorganisms).
