Waste and waste disposal
 
Human beings generate a lot of waste through their daily activities. The waste generated falls mainly into two types -- organic and inorganic.

Organic waste consists of discarded food, animal parts and plant parts. They are biodegradable, that is, they undergo decomposition and can be incorporated back into the environment.

Inorganic waste consists of discarded things made of plastic, glass, metal and other non-biodegradable material. These things are not environment-friendly and thus are not incorporated back into the environment. In fact they can pollute and harm the environment.

The basic thing about waste management is to separate the organic and inorganic waste and only allow only the organic parts to be put back into the environment. For example, some domestic organic waste like discarded vegetables and fruits can be converted into compost. The compost can be used as a fertilizer for growing plants.

In organic waste, being non-biodegradable, should not be dumped into the environment. Plastic, glass, metal and other man-made substances are preferable recycle and reused. Toxic waste has to be processed and rendered harmless. If this is not possible, then it has to be stored.

Indiscriminate waste disposal can harm the environment. As the environment is the only one we have, harming the environment means harming ourselves. Let us keep it clean so that we do not live in filth. Let us live in harmony with our environment.
