A threat to human health, toxic to the environment, dangerous to aquatic life, it’s no surprise that countries have been coming up with effective ways of waste disposal. Although, this can be quite challenging for highly populated and industrialized countries, it is not impossible. However, all it takes is an extra effort for optimal waste disposal management. Here are tips and methods of waste disposal shared by Curbside Waste, a waste management company. This will help you to incorporate the right method and make your environment a better place.

How to prevent or reduce waste/garbage

Here is one method of waste management that can be practiced from home. Make a conscious effort to prevent or reduce the amount of waste generated.

Reduce the amount of paper used, for instance, opt into paperless billing and receipts to reduce the amount of paper generated. They all contribute to waste.

Reuseing and recycling waste

Put those glass jars, bottles and plastic grocery bags to good use to minimize waste pileup. Glass jars with lids can be used to store dry food items and bottles can store dish cleaner or detergents. Plastic bags can be reused as garbage bags, wrap dirty diapers, carrying lunch and much more. They all can serve different purposes. Recycling has been one effective way of waste management. Glass, plastic, metal, electronics are processed to transform into useful new products. Know your community method of recycling and follow it. Don’t forget, those old clothes or electronics that you aren’t using anymore can be donated instead of throwing in the garbage. Those items are useful for some people and donating them could be a  blessing to others.
