We've all heard of recycling and the ubiquitous blue bins that come with every home. But what about eco-friendly recycling? Yes! We're talking about green waste, sometimes known as organic waste.
But, have you ever thought about where all this green waste goes! Let us have a look on this blog, to clear your confusions.
What is Green Waste?
Green waste is any biological waste that may be broken down into compost and utilized in various fertilizers.
What happens to Green Waste?
The actual solution lies in recycling bins with organic waste dispensers. Alternatively, if your municipality gathers organic waste, it goes in your green bin.
The full answer is a little more complicated, so we'll break it down into steps for simple learning:
- Green waste is collected in a commercial recycling container, or a green bin/compost bin for organic waste.
- The green waste bags are then collected by a dedicated organic waste truck, or a recycling/organic waste vehicle.
- The organic waste bags are then delivered to and unloaded at an organics processing plant.
- The goods are spread out on the floor of huge warehouses to be processed. This is an important method that eliminates any large, poisonous, or inorganic pollutants. You'd think the stench would be unbearable, yet these facilities employ bio-filters powered by organic material and wood chips to eliminate smells.
- After carefully sorting the green waste, it is put into massive composters that employ bacteria and heat (up to 60°C), to eliminate hazardous organisms that may poison the compost. These composters season the waste for at least three days.
- The waste has matured into immature compost and is then re-sorted as it travels on conveyor belts. The goal is to eliminate any plastic or metal fragments that were overlooked, during the initial sorting stage.
- The waste is then placed in big aeration sheds for 42 days. During this time, the climate is kept warm and humid.
- The compost is sifted and filtered once more, as a last check for contaminants or foreign elements.
- The compost is then processed with nutritive and other natural materials, to create rich, seasoned compost.
- Green waste from your house is supplied to nourish the soil, and help develop healthy plants and trees on farms and public gardens.
