The Collection of waste materials from the various sources may contain both bio-degradable and non bio-degradable materials in it. These wastes are segregated separately to dispose of them in an eco-friendly manner. The wastes like plastics materials, glass materials, metal scraps, etc must be taken care to dispose of safely. the non-decomposable waste materials are sent to the recycling plants for reuse.
Plastics materials and rubber tires are burnt in many cases as the manner of disposing of them. The smoke that is produced by burning plastics, rubber materials are more toxic to human health and the environment as well. The plastic smoke may damage the immune system, interfere with hormones and also may cause diseases like cancer. Burning the plastic releases dioxin, Dioxins are more injurious to human health and the plants as well, Dioxins will deposit on the crops and in the water bodies. If the humans intake the food containing dioxins, then it will directly affect the immune system. Carbon dioxide is enormously produced by burning the trashes, this has the significant effect in the ecosystem.
The safe way to dispose of the plastic wastes is by recycling. In this method, the non-decomposable plastic wastes are collected in a large manner and then sent to the recycling plant. The metal scraps are collected in a large manner and melted to reuse them in the production. In this method, the energy needed to produce metal from the raw materials is very less on comparing to melting the old metal scraps. Though it involves lots of energy consumption, it is only the efficient way to dispose of the metal scraps.
Waste materials like rubber tires can be sent back to the retailers who will process it and use again in the production. The burning of the rubber tires will also produce toxic smoke which will have hazardous effect in the human health and environment as well.
The Waste Clearance companies will collect the waste in the large amount, They will also segregate the waste into decomposable and non-decomposable wastes. The biodegradable material is sent to the compost for organic bio-degradation. The organic bio degradable wastes are converted into energy like gas, heat or manure whereas the non-bio degradable wastes like plastics, PVC, metals are sent for recycling. The proper disposal of the wastes is taken care by the waste clearance companies. They will ensure that the disposal of wastes occurs in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
