Biodegradable waste is more useful because it degrades. It breaks down into nutrients and organic material that is useful, like compost.

nonbiodegradable waste can last for hundreds even thousands of years.

Nonbiodegradable waste is basically "trash that doesn't decompose naturally". Meaning that bacteria will not break it down and turn it into topsoil. Thinks like banana peels will decompose very quickly, thus they are biodegradable. But plastics, foams, and metals will not decompose, thus they are nonbiodegradable.


Biodegradable waste is used in the making of natural fertiliser. Biodegradable waste is used in the making of natural fertiliser.

A cloth bag is an example of non-biodegradable waste.

It depends on the waste you are talking about.Most food scraps are biodegradable.Plastic wrapping is not biodegradable.

No, paper will biodegrade (it is an organic material).

Non- biodegradable waste is waste that can not be broken down or decayed by living organisms. Non- biodegradable waste will not become apart of the soil.

Biodegradable waste is a type of waste, typically originating from plant or animal sources, which may be broken down by other living organisms. Waste that cannot be broken down by other living organisms may be called non-biodegradable. Biodegradable waste can be commonly found in municipal solid waste (sometimes called biodegradable municipal waste, or BMW) as green waste, food waste, paper waste, and biodegradable plastics. Other biodegradable wastes include human waste, manure, sewage and slaughterhouse waste.

Biodegradable waste is a type of waste which can rot and change into manure. Non-biodegradable waste is a type of waste which cannot rot and change into manure. Such waste piles up and causes pollution. There is no way of destroying it except for burning it, which further pollutes the atmosphere.

There are many effects of biodegradable waste including less waste in garbage dumps. This means the Earth will have less waste in general.

just dont waste . Separate all wastes to their biodegradable and non-biodegradable, and recyclable and non-recyclable components. That which is recyclable and/or biodegradable then is no longer waste.

Since feces is an organic waste, it is biodegradable.

There are many kinds of waste, and many ways of disposing of waste. Most communities have sewage treatment plants, which treat sewage waste. Improvements in how this is done are coming rapidly. Industrial waste might or might not be biodegradable. For example inorganic chemicals are not normally biodegradable. On the other hand, leather scraps and wood chips are. Some non-biodegradable waste is put into landfills, and some is recycled for reuse. Biodegradable industrial waste may be digested in special reaction vessels. Farm wastes may be similarly treated. Hazardous waste is specially treated, as required. Nuclear waste is left in casks at the plants that created it, until someone makes a decision about what to do with it. Household waste is often segregated, as required by municipalities. Plastics and metals, which are not biodegradable, are recycled. Hazardous waste goes into special containers, often on designated days. Biodegradable waste is often composted, either by the municipality, or by the resident. Biodegradable waste can give off methane gas as it decomposes. Methane is a powerful global warming gas, much more powerful than carbon dioxide. In places where a sufficient amount of methane is generated, it is often used to generate heat or electricity. In other words, the answer is Yes.

Biodegradable wastes include food and kitchen waste, vegetables, flowers, leaves and fruits. Non-biodegradable wastes are materials which cannot be decomposed by natural process and cannot be used anymore or in harmful condition.

biodegradable and non-biodegradable wastes these 2 types of waste are found in a vegetable market 1) biodegradable waste : It can be decomposed ex: food waste 2) non-biodegradable waste:It cannot be decomposed ex:foams

The suitable way to manage our biodegradable is recycle our house waste as much as possibele .

It is a kind of waste that can be decomposed by micro organisms.

There are two types of solid waste, the biodegradable and the non-biodegradable waste. The solid waste can be managed through recycling or through a water and sewerage treatment plant.

Some non-biodegradable items are, Styrofoam, freon, and some radioactive waste.

no, plastic can never be considered a biodegradable waste because it cannot be made into simpler substances by the microorganisms
