The environment is the major concern in today’s world. The mankind has been suffering a lot due the environmental issues. The environment can be saved by recycling the waste. Segregation is essential as the amount of waste being generated today causes immense of problem. There are majorly two types of waste - biodegradable and non-biodegradable. There are certain items which are non-biodegradable but can be recycled and reused. It is believed that large proportion of waste can be recycled and a part of can be converted to compost and only small proportion of it is real waste that has no use and has to be discarded. The waste which are generated from households should be separated into different dustbins as per categories of wastes such as wet and dry. Thus waste segregation and disposal should be done as following:
  • Biodegradable waste that includes organic waste e.g. kitchen waste, vegetables, flowers, etc. should decomposed in the green dustbin.
  • The non-biodegradable waste such as glass should be thrown in the yellow dustbin, plastic waste should be thrown in the blue dustbin.
  • The most hazardous waste should be thrown in the red dustbin and grey dustbin is used for metal wastes.
