Broadly, waste can be divided into two major categories on the basis of the amount of time required to completely recycle it: biodegradable and nonbiodegradable waste. Bio-degradable waste can be broken down into the most basic of building blocks such as nitrates and carbon dioxide by micro-organisms in a reasonable amount of time. Such waste is then absorbed by the environment and re-used as a resource.
Today, recycling biodegradable waste is part of a general philosophy where waste is treated not as something to be discarded but as a resource instead, trying to recover whatever possible and return it to the natural environment. The objective is to not only reduce the volume of waste being generated but also decrease the use of chemicals, fertilizers, and artificial materials as well as make good use of the nutrients that are left back in such waste.
As humans, it is our responsibility to manage different streams of waste to the best of our abilities and try and generate benefits from it. We at Green Gamut help you take the first step towards managing waste and building a sustainable environment for the future generations.
