Let us first begin with one universal question asked, what is the difference between disposing garbage and disposing of garbage properly? It is not only the word “properly” that separates the two phrases but the concept behind it. Let us understand it thoroughly.
Disposing garbage can include you throwing off the trash anywhere near the general waste bin, not caring much about the type of dustbin or the kind of trash you are throwing. Anything that you don’t need becomes trash and you throw it away without releasing that it might possess harmful constituents that can harm the surroundings.
On the other hand, when you dispose of garbage properly and responsibly, it indicates that you understand that not all trashes have the same destination or treatment. You know that some of them can be recycled, some are toxic and some are treated separately in factories by waste management companies.
So this covers the basic concept and answers the questions raised at the beginning of the article. But one question still remains unanswered. Why should you be responsible when throwing away garbage? Here are two extremely justifying points.
- The environmental advantages are too long to list, however, the basic one can be identified as reducing pollution. Toxic materials when end up in the landfill can infect the land, water, and air, harming life altogether. They needed to be dealt in the factories.
- Paper is a recyclable product. Producing one ton of paper requires 17 trees to be cut down. And by now we know how important trees are. So if we put them in the right bin (the yellow one), then you might be saving more trees than you can conjure. Waste management companies who deal with document shredding services and recycling paper install appropriate bins to collect the same.
Hence, it can be concluded that with proper disposal of waste, we can save the planet from further destruction. Be responsible and protect life!
