Solid wastes are everything that goes out in trash. Municipal solid wastes are all the wastes collected from homes, offices, stores, schools, hospitals, etc., that are collected and disposed by the municipality. Are solid wastes and municipal solid wastes same??? Examples of municipal solid wastes generally consists of paper, food wastes, plastics, glass, metals, rubber, leather, textile, etc.
Wrong practices of disposal Incomplete burning of the wastes Open dumping which serves as the breeding ground ground for rats and flies.
Sanitary landfills- These were adopted as the substitute for open burning dumps. In a sanitary landfill, wastes are dumped in a depressing or trench after compaction, and covered with dirt everyday. Are solid wastes and municipal solid wastes same??? re
But.. are landfills really a solution??? Because the amount of garbage generation specially in the metros are also increasing, as result of which these sites are getting filled too. Also there is danger of seepage of chemicals, etc., from these landfills polluting the underground water resources.
The only solution is becoming more sensitive to these environment issues... Wastes that we generate can be categorised in to 3 types 1) Bio - degradable 2) Recyclable 3) Non - biodegradable
State governments across the country are trying to push for reduction in use of plastics and use of eco friendly packaging. Lets carry cloth or any other natural fibre carry bags when we go shopping and by refusing polythene bag..
