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.

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

by not throwing the plasticts in the groud is on of the way to control nonbiodegradalle waste

nonbiodegradable waste can last for hundreds even thousands of years.

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

We are the only organisms that we know of that can understand and apply scientific knowledge to create nonbiodegradable substances.

Biodegradable and nonbiodegradable

plastic is nonbiodegradable and contributes to pollution

it is a nonbiodegradable substance, it corrodes, slowly.

plastic being nonbiodegradable leads to pollution the can rip easily

No. Cow dung is organic material which definitely makes it biodegradable.

nonbiodegradable means that a particular object is not able to break down naturally, such as man made plastic.

Biodegradable materials will rot, weather, or rust and 'return to nature'. Wood, paper, and even most metals are biodegradable to various degrees. Nonbiodegradable materials will not break down naturally. Most plastics and synthetic materials are nonbiodegradable.

it can cause bad hair ! crops can get cut down and dogs will come and eat them iyahh trev

non-biodegradable plastic is a kind of plastic which is not easily decomposed by nature and vice versus

Only Plastics are non biodegradable. because the molecular bond between them is so strong hence it is difficult to break it hence it is non 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.

wastes are of different types..they are of industrial waste oceanic waste hospital waste kitchen waste

Hundreds, 400-700 I think, but I'm not certain, landfill sites do not provide good conditions for nonbiodegradable plastics to degrade,

Solid waste can be classified into different types depending on their source:a) Household waste is generally classified as municipal waste, b) Industrial waste as hazardous waste, and c) Biomedical waste or hospital waste as infectious waste.
