Classification of waste

The classification of waste and difference between dry waste and wet waste is not as tough as it seems, this simple classification needs just two things basic understanding and social awareness. Well, you may follow these tips to understand and separate the wet and dry waste.

Wet waste-

  • The wet waste is also known as the organic waste material which is more often decomposable or may be used to make manures. The wet waste consists of such materials that are typically moist or wet and can be decompose naturally.
  • You may understand the wet waste by taking examples of wet waste which includes food scraps, kitchen waste, vegetables, fruit peels, garden trimmings, and biodegradable paper products (e.g., napkins, tissues, newspaper, and notebooks).

Wet waste can be broken down through composting or anaerobic digestion. The biggest benefits of treating wet waste is that they can be used to make the manures, composts and biogas. So, by using the methods of wet waste management we may keep our environment clean and use the wet waste in best utilized manner.

​​​​​​​Dry waste-

  • The dry waste consist of those waste materials which are not easily decomposable and are non-biodegradable.
  • To better understanding of dry waste wake these examples of dry waste which includes paper, cardboard, plastic containers, glass bottles, metals, textiles, electronic waste (e-waste), and other materials that are not easily degradable in environment.
  • Now we can further classify dry waste into two categories recyclables (e.g., paper, cardboard, glass, plastics, metals) and non-recyclables (e.g., certain plastics that are not recyclable, broken glass that cannot be recycled, etc.).
  • The dry waste materials like plastic bags, plastic bottle, metals and e-waste can be recycled to be used for different purposes and thus by recycling these materials we may save the environment from pollution.

Wet and Dry Waste segregation

The dry and wet waste segregation is an essential step for the management and recycling of the waste material. The proper segregation of waste helps in reducing the environmental impact of waste and allows the effective recycling or composting methods of waste materials. The segregation of waste material is vital in keeping clean environment and it is also economically viable because by recycling the waste we can use it again for our purposes. Here are some steps to help you segregate wet and dry waste:

  • Use Separate Bins or Containers: The primary step toward separation or segregation of waste material begins with the separation the use of separate bins or containers for keeping the waste.

Education and information is the waste way by which a massage can be given about the separation of wet waste and dry waste.
  • Recyclables Collection: Have the separate collection of recyclable waste, you can either sell these recyclable waste materials or submit it to municipality. So, by separation of waste you are not only saving the environment but also converting the waste into monetary assistance for yourself.
