They said that if you love the environment you should do your part in saving it. There are lots of things we can do to take part for a healthier nature. We can help clean our streets, we can plant new trees, we can recycle our plastic bags, and we can simply segregate our trash.
Trash or waste segregation is basically the process of sorting out the garbage to make sure the right waste go to the right place. This is usually done by putting the same kind of garbage in one trash bag and other kinds in another bag. This is primarily to organize wastes, to reduce litter and segregate those materials that can be reused or recycled.
Sometimes people are having a hard time separating their trash. Often they would just put all kinds of trashwhether wet or dry, plastic or cans, left-over foods and papersinto one bin. Do you think this is a wise way to handle the garbage? This would just clutter your bin, emit unpleasant odor, and make decomposition difficult.
For this reason are the trash bags made specifically with varying colors. They are created so as people can properly segregate any kinds of garbage. While specific colors are assigned to each kind of trash, it is the people's responsibility to know which trash is for what color so they can segregate their trash accordingly.
Here are the basic colors we need to familiarize ourselves for proper waste segregation:
So the next time we are going to put away our trash, we already know in what trash bag they need to be placed. By proper waste segregation, we are doing our part for a cleaner environment.
