There's no day in our life when there's zero waste, maybe this just a part of living. The sad thing is these waste accumulates as times pass and more and more wastes are being produced as our population grows. But to render these wastes into good use, we can somehow alleviate this situation into our advantage.
Most often, wastes products are from the food we eat. These often are from fruit peeling or packaging. These substances are mostly organic in nature that it can be decomposed easily in our backyard. Substances such banana peelings are easily broken down naturally without having you to mind a huge pile after some time.
What you can do to these types of wastes is to put in a compost pit. This practice is very efficient and favorable for us as it delivers results without the need for some complicated process. You can simply dig some 6 cubic foot hole where you can introduce these wastes. As these wastes don't really have to take much time in decomposing you can be sure that it won't pose any harmful problems.
What's more for this type of waste management services is that you can make it as a fertilizer for your garden. Substances from the pit you have made, with the decomposed materials, offer the nutrients needed by your plants. These can augment, if not replace, your need to buy commercial fertilizers for your garden.
Disposing wastes this way will also deliver efficient waste management in our community. Many times we see controversies on proper waste disposal all over the globe. We see other folks protest against opening a dump site near their homes. This is actually not just the problem of one community but the whole world. Disposing our wastes properly by ourselves can control instances of making the problem worse. It is way much better to control something at the ground level than those that are beyond our reach.
Each spec of waste we accumulate each are actually adding into a global problem. As we prosper with some better technology why not consider paying some amount back to nature? Remember that our progress is useless without a world to live in.
