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

Best way would be to separate the biodegradable waste from non biodegradable waste. If u want it to be more systematic, get in touch wid local authorities & set up an effiecient waste disposal system.



Non-biodegradable waste cannot be decomposed by bacteria. As a result household wastes such as detergents, soaps, synthetic cloth etc. go into the sewage undegraded which results in waste accumulation. Therefore, such wastes are harmful.

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.


nonbiodegrable waste is more hazardous for mankind . find it reason?


Non-biodegradable waste has a very harmful effect on the environment. Non-biodegradable products take many years to decompose, and cause more and more land to be used for landfills. Toxins from plastics leach into ground water causing contamination.


Biodegradable substances are waste substanses that can decompose after a peirod if time whether short or long e.g basically food, paper, etc While non biodegradable substances are waste products that can not decompose even after a long period of time e.g glass, metal cans, cups, plastic and the have to be recycled.


by adding chicken dung,pigs "popo" or any biodegradable waste!

The advantages of recycling garbage waste materials is less waste in landfills and more availability of materials. Recycling reduces the need to produce more non-biodegradable products like plastic.


Wastes that doesn't decay or can't be decomposed naturally, more precisely biologically.


BIODEGRADABLE: The waste that breaks down easily by the action of some micro-organism (i.e. bacteria) and also can break down in a non-poisonous form. Biodegradable waste will eventually break down and become part of the earth and soil, like food scraps and paper. Non-biodegradable waste will NOT break down (or won't for many many years). Examples are plastics, metal and glass. Some dangerous chemicals and toxins are also non-biodegradable, as are plastic grocery bags, Styrofoam (polystyrene), and other similar materials. Non-biodegradable can be misleading, as often the subject that this term is associated with is organic matter and organic matter always decays so it is biodegradable. This term was principally created to help improve public awareness of responsible recycling. Plastic is classed as non-biodegradable but certain types of plastic decay at faster rates than others: a plastic milk bottle container purchased from a supermarket may take anything from 5 to 20 years in the environment to become brittle enough to be destroyed by the elements. Other types of thicker plastic may take 100-500 years or more to fully decay but in the timespan of the history of the world that is just a blink of the eye.


Paper is a hundred percent biodegradable. Plastic is not biodegradable. We should use easily biodegradable materials more often, such as paper, wood, cloth, and the like.


What I think about the trees is that, they shed their over-grown and no-more useful leaves in the season of Autumn. This is how I think that trees get rid of their waste.


An advantage of biodegradable materials is that they help maintain a clean planet and environment for people. A disadvantage of biodegradable materials is that they are usually more expensive to purchase.


some examples of biodegradable objects are paper food plastic plants and there's lot more! :)




trees are useful for animals because animals live in trees. It is bad when we waste paper because to get more paper we have to cut down trees which destroys the animal's home.


a list of biodegradable wastes:- 1 paper 2 cardboard 3 peels of fruits(and vegetables) 4 kitchen food scraps these are only some of them but there are many more.


Fortunately, much waste does degrade over time, and if the waste is biodegradable, it will eventually become part of the ecosystem. Also, slowly, people are becoming more aware of the need for protecting our environment.Perhaps a better question is: Why is the earth not covered in environmental waste yet, and what can we do to drastically further education worldwide to prevent this from happening?Another essential question for each of us to ask is: What am I doing that adds to environmental waste, and how can I learn more about how to change my own habits so I can be an example to others?


There are several types of toxic waste that can be recycled safely, which reduces the amount of harmful materials in landfills. One of the more useful things to be recycled and sold relatively cheaply is paint.


There is a high volume of e-waste because electronics are so commonly used in today's society that of course there are also many electronic devices that are no longer useful. Electronics generally have a shorter lifespan than other products because they are often more delicate and go obsolete much more quickly (because of the rate at which electronics are developing), resulting in more electronics being thrown away--more e-waste.


Eggs are more useful after they are broken.
