COMPOSTING Through aerobic fermentation organic household waste can turned into fertilizer, which the process called composting. The use of fertilizers can more often makes plants, flowers and trees nutritious, fertilizers can be use in gardens, rice fields and in general agriculture. The good thing about composed waste is that it does not contribute to the danger of food pollution. Composting is somehow a method of recycling. Recycling biodegradable waste is considered as a disposal process, and not a production process. (Dreschel 2001, Cited by Thompson, 2010) Composting is an excellent method of recycling recyclable waste from an ecological point of view. However, many large and small composting schemes have failed because composting is…show more content…
This recycled wastes materials that enters disposal sites are providing the needed raw materials for industries. Affirming the recycling method is the best, effective and efficient method of managing solid waste according to the industries. Recycled waste materials will be converted from a useless material into valuable resources, capable of generating employment and bringing in economic returns. Recycling can conserve natural resources and yields environmental, financial and social returns, it conserved energy, prevention of pollution and the expansion of economic. More importantly that a small amount of, what is to be dispose contains raw valuable resources. ((Momoh and Oladebeye) (2010: 1, cited by Puopiel, 2010)) — Metals, glass, paper, wood, and plastic these are waste materials that can be reprocessed and can be used again as raw materials (USEPA, 1999 cited by Puopiel, 2010). In terms of profit and easy doing, recycling is the most effective of all solid wastes management options. Recycling is a perfect solution in reducing waste instead of harvesting numerous virgin resources. Waste is recycled thoroughly so that waste materials can be a valuable as…show more content…
Carbon dioxide, water vapor, ash and non-combustible residue are the end products of incineration. Incineration reduces solid wastes 90% by volume and 75% by weight (Rainer, 1990). Incineration is a absolute way of energy recovery, where the heat generated from the burning of waste is used. Incineration however needs to be supported by land filling or a place where incineration will be executed since there will always be residue after the process (Rainer,
