Throwing away daily garbage correctly is crucial for a clean and healthy environment.
We clean our home. However, we have forgotten to make a healthy environment.
Every practice our daily life style can affect one another, either in the proper way or improper way.
Throwing garbage can be counted in it. We had better start practicing to segregate trash rather than throwing them.
Waste segregation is the process of separating waste into different groups. The main categories are the following:
1. Recyclable
2. Organic
3. Household Waste
4. Hazardous Waste


Cardboards, papers, newspapers, magazines, plastic bottles and containers, cartons, glass bottles and jars, etc.

Segregate these trash rather than them throwing them into the same bin.
We can sell these items to scrap or to utilize them at home, such as an old jar that can be used as a pen holder.
Reusing the waste material in art craft could be a creative idea too.


Fruit and vegetable peels and scraps,
Leftover food and kitchen waste,
Tea bags and coffee grounds,
Leaves and yard trimmings,
Bread scraps and so on.

1. Make a meal plane to avoid buying too much food.
2. .Properly store vegetables and fruits into the refrigerator to not get wilt.
3. Try to freeze leftover food in airtight containers for the next meal.

Household Waste

Disposable cups and glass.

Sanitary products such as diapers, pads and wipes.Paper towels and tissues.
Broken glass and ceramic.

These are the wastes which can't be recycled or are not reusable.

Try to minimize the use of non- recyclable waste.
Wrap the burnable waste into a plastic bag and tie it to prevent litter and mess.
Discard the bundles into your regular trash cans for collection.

Hazardous Waste
Most hazardous wastes come from factories However, even schools, hospitals, retail stores generate hazardous waste. And it is important that these wastes are properly managed to keep us safe. It is extremely dangerous to put hazardous materials in recycling bin. While hazardous wastes that come from our homes are not the subject of strict rules, it is still best to keep them out of our landfills.They can easily catch fire and explode. Cell phone batteries, needles and compressed gas Cans should not be in the home recycling.

Local governments often offer household hazardous waste collection. Where residents can bring batteries, electronics, old paints , chemicals , mercy thermostats and many more.

In conclusion, to keep the environment safe, discarding garbage in the appropriate way is a highly pivotal step for everyone. Start separating trash rather than throwing in an only bin together to shield the atmosphere.
