What are the 3R of Solid Waste Management?
It is very much critical that every one of us must do our share to keep as many things out of the landfills as possible. One method to put this strategy into action is to practice the three R’s of waste management: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
1. Reduce implies to reduce the quantity of waste we produce;
2. To reuse means to find new uses for items that would otherwise be discarded;
3. To recycle is to transform something old and worthless (such as plastic milk bottles) into something new and valuable (like picnic benches, playground equipment and recycling bins).
Let us discuss the 3R’s in detail:
Simply put, reducing means producing less waste. It is the most effective strategy for keeping the environment clean, hence it is the first of the three R’s. By decreasing the waste, you may halt the problem at its source. Producing less waste in the first place equals less rubbish to clean up afterwards.
Here are some simple steps you may do to decrease your waste:
-Lunch should be packed in a lunchbox
Paper and plastic bags generate enormous amounts of waste and plastic bags disintegrate over hundreds of years. Instead, use a sturdy lunchbox or reusable lunch bag.
-Bring reusable shopping bags to the store
Most retailers sell canvas or long-lasting plastic shopping bags that may be reused. Some grocery stores may even give you a little discount at the checkout if you bring your own bags.
-No to bottled water
Use a reusable bottle instead of bottled water.
-Take care with your purchases
Pay attention to the package when you're in the grocery. Is it possible to wipe out the container and reuse it? When evaluating two identical items, choose the one with the least amount of packing.
Reusing is finding a new purpose for outdated or undesirable goods that would otherwise be discarded. You may repurpose products in a variety of ways to help minimize your garbage footprint.
-Sort through your closet
Perhaps your size has changed. Perhaps your preferences have evolved. Instead of tossing away clothes you no longer desire, give them to someone who will. If you have a box of toddler clothing and your "baby" is now in elementary school, donate the items to a friend who has a little child. You may also donate your clothes to a variety of charity organizations; they will find a good home for your items and you will receive a tax benefit.
-Distribute your toys
Do you have a collection of old toys that you no longer require? Donate them to a local day care, preschool or family with children. You might also give them to a local charity. The more you share the less garbage you produce.
-Find a new use for an old object
When it's time to get go of something, consider new uses for it. Glass jars, for example, can be used as storage in your craft room or store. Cut up old bath towels and use them as wash rags. Plastic pop bottles can be used as bird feeders. Make an old magazine woven basket or tray.
-Hold a garage sale
You know the dining room set, workout equipment, knickknacks, blender and other items you no longer use around the house. Someone out there would be delighted to have them. A garage sale is an excellent method to declutter your home and repurpose any unwanted goods. You can also make some money. When the sale is over, box up everything that didn't sell and give what's left to a local charity — many will come to your house to pick it up.
Recycling is the last and most often utilized of the three R’s. Recycling is the process of converting wasted materials into new goods in order to minimize the use of more virgin resources.
Corrugated cardboard, milk jug style containers, newspaper and inserts, as well as tin and aluminium cans, can all be recycled in your Rogue Disposal & Recycling red-lid cart. But what happens to those objects later on?
Corrugated cardboard is recycled into paper bags, paperboard (such as soap, cereal, tissue, and shoe boxes), fresh cardboard and even the squiggly center section of corrugated cardboard.
When you place tin and aluminium cans in the recycling cart, they are sent to a facility where they can be recycled into a range of new goods.
