Why Use Skip Bins: Segregating Waste Based on Type and Size

Proper waste disposal is a must, as improperly disposing of garbage has negative effects on the environment. Improper waste disposal may lead to harmful chemical emission that seeps into the soil, polluting it and the groundwater below the surface. These adversely affect the surrounding eco-system and the communities near it.

Segregating waste based on type and size may seem like a small task, but it has big positive effects on the environment.

Waste Segregation

Segregating waste is not just about making it easier for you or the collector to get rid of trash. Segregation has environmental benefits that make sure hazardous waste is not mixed with recyclables or other kinds of waste. Mixing chemicals may create a flammable Biohazard that harms you and the environment.

There are different ways to dispose of plastic, paper, and metals. These undergo a certain way of disposal or recycling once they reach a landfill or recycling centre. Recycling or up-cycling these waste items are easier when you segregate them before sending them for disposal.

Waste segregation falls into categories, such as:

  1. Glass
  2. Cardboard
  3. Textiles
  4. Scrap metal
  5. Residual waste
  6. Compost
  7. Paper

These categories allow collectors to identify why items go to which centre for either recycling or disposal.
