Waste Segregation

The sorting of waste into separate bins is called waste segregation. You can segregate waste by clubbing waste into categories and bins. Here are some basic categories to start you on your way.

  • Paper
  • Cardboard (including packaging for return to suppliers)
  • Glass (clear, tinted – no light bulbs or window panes, which belong with residual waste)
  • Plastics
  • Textiles
  • Wood, leather, rubber
  • Scrap metal
  • Compost (goes into the composting bin)
  • Special/hazardous waste
  • Residual waste (light bulbs, window panes)
  • E-waste (computer bits and electronic devices to be thrown away)

You can call a recycler <–(Google Link) or locally recycle it.

Waste sorting/segregation is a great way to reduce your waste. If you don’t sort your waste, all of it will go to a landfill, where it’ll stink and rot and make the place smell horrible! So make sure you get multiple bins for these categories and throw waste in respectively.

It’s great to waste segregate!
