solid waste


Solid waste is defined as a group of waste produced by human beings in their daily lives and which are characterized by presenting a solid state, a characteristic that makes them different from waste of other types such as liquid and gaseous. It should be noted that this type of waste is what the human being generates with greater abundance, this is because almost anything that the human being does involves the use of this type of waste, in addition to that with regard to space as such, these are the ones that occupy a higher percentage, since they are very difficult to biodegrade.

At present, the lifestyle of people is clearly consumerist, which is why a large number of solid waste is generated, especially those industries that have different types of presentation for the same product, for which they use different types of waste. materials such as plastic, cardboard, paper, glass, polystyrene, which although they can be reusable, if they are discarded they can take decades to decompose, which generates the accumulation of large amounts of garbage, not to mention that much of this waste can become toxic to health.

That is why in recent decades the reduction of this type of waste has become so important, for this reason it is necessary that people become aware and contribute their grain of sand, either by reusing what they can as well as contribute to recycling, selecting your garbage properly and depositing it in the containers of the color corresponding to the type of waste and at macro levels encourage the creation of new plants that are dedicated to the treatment of materials so that they can be useful again.

This means that the eradication of this evil will depend on the group of all members of society since, as mentioned above, only by changing the mentality of people can change be produced. That is why the initiative for new alternatives to this problem must begin in small communities, since all of them will surely bear fruit over the years.
