Disposing of your waste while being eco-conscious can be more troublesome than it sounds. What is the difference between waste types and waste recycling?
In this blog post, we simplify these types and which environmentally friendly waste disposal method each needs for peace of mind.
Green Waste is fresh organic waste such as landscaping leftovers, cut branches, hedges, lawn trimmings, etc. But this doesn’t include dried-out flora or processed woods such as dry leaves, hay and carpentry timber. Green waste removal can recycle these materials into useful compost for places such as plant nurseries and farms.
Wood Waste is the processed or dried organic waste we discussed above; carpentry timber, dry leaves, but not fresh materials. Wood waste typically means processed planks used in carpentry or pallet making and also includes leaves, hay, cardboard or any other type of carbonaceous waste.
While green waste is nitrogenous, it is usually seen as fresh greenery waste like cut branches, hedges and grass trimmings. Both of these types of waste are biodegradable and can be very useful.
Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects and often includes the recovery of energy from waste materials. You can recycle materials such as aluminium, glass, plastic and paper. During the recycling process, the waste is collected and sorted into distinct categories.
They are then transported to recycling facilities where they are transformed into new products. Effective recycling on everyone’s behalf helps decrease the world’s carbon footprint as creating products from recycled materials requires significantly less energy than producing them from scratch.
Composting is the oldest and most effective way to dispose of waste. It involves microorganisms breaking down organic matter into simpler forms. The carbon serves as a source of energy for these microorganisms. Inorganic and hazardous wastes should not be composted.
