Non-Biodegradable Waste
Recycling Non-Biodegradable Waste
Recycling has been around for ages, just under a different name - some even referred to it as being frugal. Before, instead of disposing of one's broken items, people would make an effort to fix them. Nowadays, products are made out of single-use, inexpensive materials.
If you'd like to practise effective recycling and reduction of waste, we suggest for you to read on to find out what to do with non-biodegradable items like plastics, metal, glass and synthetics.
Mobile phones, laptops, computers, televisions and other appliances are widely used in today's world and so, you might be in a position where you'd have to change them regularly. When these products break or need replacing, donate or recycle them in order to reuse the valuable natural resources, conserve energy and avoid pollution.
These can be taken to one of WasteServ's Civic Amenity Sites where they'll be disposed of in a sustainable way. Or else you can contact your Local Council so that they will collect it from you from your doorstep.
Batteries contain reclaimable but harmful lead and sulfuric acid. Dry cell batteries that can be recycled include button and coin cell batteries, AA, AAA, C, D and 9V batteries, and rechargeable lithium and lithium-ion batteries. If not disposed of correctly, they'll leach mercury, lead, nickel and cadmium which are extremely hazardous to the environment and to our health. Instead, they should be disposed of in an eco-friendly manner. This is why GreenPak has implemented the BATREE initiative.

Minimize Packaging Waste
Plastic packaging can take up to 1,000 years to decompose in landfills and in doing so, leak pollutants into the environment. Instead, buy grocery items in bulk rather than buying individual, separately-wrapped items. Opt for refillable containers of items like detergents and hand soaps. Buy concentrated products and dilute them at home. Substitute plastic bags for biodegradable paper and cloth items or reusable containers. Purchase multiple-use items like rechargeable batteries.
