. How can you help in reducing the problem of waste disposal? Give any two methods
Solution-It is very important to manage waste disposal. Methods used to reduce the problems of waste disposal are as follows-
i. Practicing 3 R’s of waste management- Reduce, Re-use and Recycle. Reduce the use of plastics and polythene bags, and use jute bags more. Throwing biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste into separate dustbins make it easier to be recycled. Making Re-use of plastic containers to fill household items. Using paper bags and recycled paper.
ii. Composting- Preparing compost by putting the organic matter/ biodegradable waste into compost pits dug in the ground. The compost decomposes the material into fertilizers which help in increasing the fertility of soil.
