Simple ways of minimising waste: the Perth way!

Posted on 31 March 2018 by admin (0)

Many of you may remember our last post about how a Perth company saved our day. Well, this time around I’ve got another special mention to a local business in Perth.

During our stay, we met Mark who owned a skip hire company (https://www.wizzbinz.com.au/). We asked him how he got into the industry and he told us about his passion about keeping the place clean. It is the very reason to why he is now runs a bin hire business focusing on the South of the River suburbs.

He was an interesting chap and after spending a little bit of time with him, he had made me realise how precious our environment is and how important it is to promote ecological sustainability. So much so that I decide to write a brief post about how you can minimise waste at home. So please keep on reading:

How to Minimise Waste

Are you aware that you can minimize waste at home, in school and in the community? You must be worried thinking about ways on how to reduce waste. Let me give you some ways that you can easily manage.

  • Composting

Do you know that food scraps are the ones that makes strong stinky odor when spoiled and got wet. Pretty sure that you do want to avoid such bad odor. Why don’t you learn to make a small compost pit? You may get a big container with cover for this.

Through your compost, there would be a natural process of making fertilizers. You do not need chemicals here. So, when the process is complete, you can safely use this compost to feed your plants. The process might take some time. The wastes are slowly decomposed, but a safe way to make organic products and a good way to reduce waste.

  • Recovering Energy

There are wastes that you cannot recycle. But, these wastes may undergo a certain process and can be converted into a renewable source of energy, such as fuel, electricity or heat. With this method, wastes and carbon emission are reduced.

You are not going to do this process by yourself. Instead, collect your non-recyclable wastes and send them to people, who will do the process for you.

  • Avoiding wastes going to landfills

This will only happen if you can recycle and reuse your wastes. Instead of letting the wastes go to the landfills, keep and use them. Do not throw empty plastic and glass bottles because you can use them in the kitchen or for crafting different items, such as vases, flower pots, pen holders and other décors.

When you are in the department store, do not always pick items that would contribute in generating more waste. And then, if you have old or broken stuffs. Do not think about buying a new one right away. If you can still fix it, then that would be great.
