Waste Management: Products and Services
Most of us are now beginning to feel the pressure being placed on us to reduce the amount of waste we actually produce and to reuse or recycle as much of our household waste as we possibly can. Practically all local councils are providing bins to enable us to recycle at least two different items of household waste and many organisations have been set up specifically to dispose of just about everything else you can think of from mobile phones and battery chargers, to bits of metal and aluminium cans.However, many people are still throwing away a large amount of kitchen and garden waste every day without a second thought as to where it will end up. If you throw it in the bin, it is likely to end up in a landfill site and that is not what any of us should want.The problem with landfillWhen kitchen and garden waste is discarded in our bins it will be buried underground along with mountains of other rubbish. As it is deprived of oxygen, it will produce methane gas as it starts to decompose. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that is contributing to global warming and climate change. Apart from the fact that we are running out of space for landfill, we must all do our bit to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases we produce. In order to do this, governments have set targets to reduce the amount of waste ending up in landfill, including the amount of kitchen and garden waste we throw away, but it is still up to us, the individual, to do our bit and make a difference.- Plastic, metal, glass or any other substance that cannot break downDo you need a license?Many people ask if you need some sort of license or permission to compost and the simple answer is no, not if it's for domestic use. There are some rules if you keep animals. For example, pigs, cattle, sheep, goats and deer can become ill and diseased if allowed access to composted kitchen waste and so you cannot compost in the same place where these animals are kept.If you keep chickens and hens then any compost should be done in an enclosed container so that they cannot come into contact with the contents. Check with your local authority if you are unsure.Domestic pets are OK though and you can compost at home without any approval or license provided of course that you use the compost in your own garden.Apart from the fact that composting helps to preserve the planet and the environment and helps meet government targets for reducing household waste, nothing can be more satisfying than using your kitchen and garden waste to produce food to nourish your own garden.
