15 Ways to Manage your Solid Waste

 
Solid waste should be managed properly. It could be recycled and even converted into money. Environmental problems would be lessened through proper waste management. People should have discipline in disposing garbage in the right place.
            The following are 15 ways to meaningfully manage your solid maste:

1. Do not burn your waste materials; instead make a hole to put your garbage.

2. Segregate your waste into biodegradable and non-biodegradable materials.

3. Your peeled fruits and vegetables can be used as fertilizer for the plants.

4. Recycle your biodegradable materials (like cartons, bottles, papers, and the like) into usable ones or sell them into the junk dealers.

5. If you use plastic grocery bags, reuse them for your small trash.

6. Buy products that are organic like food, soap, and detergent.

7. Do not throw you waste (like the candy wrappers or pieces of paper) in the streets, instead keep them in your pocket or bag.

8. You may use cloth diapers for your baby instead of disposable ones.

9. When going to market, use a “bayong,” reusable bags, or a eco-bags.

10. Old clothes can be used as rags (like shirts, towels, and shorts).

11. Eggshells can be placed in your orchids. Egg shells can also help in organic planting.

12. Make a scrap paper or use the back of your paper for writing some of your notes.

13. Minimize the use of plastic in any occasion (like plastic plates, glass, spoon and forks.)

14. If you have your monthly period, you may use “pasador” instead of using sanitary napkins.

15. Join the seminars in your barangay about proper waste management. Try to support projects that deal with proper waste management.

I think that only if all of us would be steward of our planet, we would not suffer that much from environmental problems. We must remember that solid waste materials can cause imbalance in nature like pollution and global warming. But we can change the world into a better place if we would start within us. Let us try to discipline ourselves especially in disposing our garbage. The future of our country depends on us. Let us help the next generation to also enjoy the planet we live in.

Hi. I respect your opinion about the waste management but in addition to what you have mentioned, I think the government must still provide and manage with regards to this issue. As far as I concern, not all Filipino's are responsible for a proper waste management, they still tend to depend this management to their respective community personnel and have left the proper waste management to them. I think the government or should I say those LGU's must inform and conduct seminars in their places so that those community people will have a guidance and knowledge about the proper handling of their wastes. By this, we can assure that those informed can perform their duty in much proper and responsible way.

The best way to prevent the Environmental problems is to recycle solid waste materials to a new materials so that we can fix our problems by making a new materials.

i really appreciate on what mrs.ancheta says on article like number 4 (4. Recycle your biodegradable materials (like cartons, bottles, papers, and the like) into usable ones or sell them into the junk dealers). because it is very helpful not only in our goverment but especially on our environment, and will be also helpful to poor people or garbage collector. Reservation not sell the clippings they can continue to sell the junkshop or recycled.
