Garbage disposal basically involves collection, carrying, recycling or disposal of waste materials left over from constructions, industries, organic and demolition. Today, garbage disposal in cities have become a rising challenge due to the increase in population, limited dumping space and financial problems.
Garbage management involves the process of filtering out solid wastes and recycling some of them that don’t belong to landfill. It is about extracting useful items from the garbage, treating and then reusing it. Waste management programs help you get rid of the junk that you no longer need without polluting the environment. Proper garbage disposal helps you go green and protect your environment from disease causing bacteria.
Types of Garbage disposal
There are several garbage disposal methods.
Recycling is a process of filtering out useful items from the garbage for reusing it. It is the responsibility of every household and business owner to recycle items such as paper, glass, metals and plastics and not to mix it with other useless waste. By recycling such items you will get money, conserve energy, reduce area of landfills, preserve natural resources and thereby protect your environment. The local corporations of almost all cities encourage people to carry out recycling.
Composting is a natural process of recycling your garden waste. Use bins to dump the dried leaves, grass, twigs, fruits and vegetable peels. Leave it for few days to decompose. Once it has decomposed, you can use this material as manure which is loaded with nutrients to improve your soil texture.
A large area away from cities is selected for landfills. A pit is dug for collecting the garbage. After dumping waste into it, the pit is lined up with soil. Landfills are harmful because they release poisonous gases like methane. This method is not safe if handled without care.
This method is useful for wastes that cannot be recycled and when there is lack of landfill space. The solid wastes are burnt in incineration chambers. An waste will filter off all hazardous compounds. It can be operated under all weather conditions and is safe for environment. Another advantage of using this method is it reduces the space the solid wastes consume. The only thing left behind is ash.
Clean fill disposal
Clean fill disposal is the process of disposing dirt, clay or gravel small in size. Clean fill should be free from debris such as dried leaves, twigs, wood, heavy boulders, garbage and wastes from construction. If you add any other wastes that are not considered for clean fill, you will have to pay more for the disposal.
Soil disposal is the process of removing contaminated soil from your site. Before disposing, the soil needs to be evaluated according to the NSW DECC Waste Classification standards. Based on this classification, you receive a permit to dump your soil in a particular place.
