Garbage problem is the main head ache of many municipalities and towns. They shifted the town garbage to a remote area where there are less population.When the people there strikes of complied about the problem again they shifted it again. I think a permanent solution needed. Good working garbage plants needed for process. Some of wastes can process in its origin. Lot of awareness needed.

In the US and Canada garbage has become big business. Most items are recycled now, including metals,glass, plastic and paper. Food garbage is kept separated and composted, and grass and leaves are composted to be reused . Some things are buried, there are hills that were garbage .

That is true but in my view less than 5% should go in the landfill, much can be used in other ways. The processing plants need to start processing the garbage not simply tipping it.

Of course a permanent solution is needed. The government must build a plant where to get rid of the garbage.

garbage is mixed with all type of wastes. It is difficult to sorted out and processing.

@shshiju The population must sort the garbage and put in separate bins. This is what we do here.

I think that is a common problem everywhere, they should process the rubbish we throw out, taking the compost-able elements and create manure, take the tins and use them to manufacture new tins etc. The emphasis should be on the garbage processing plants to process the material correctly and not demand that we separate the recyclables.

@shshiju I think very little of our junk should end up in a landfill, but too much of it does.

Did you know grounded non biodegradable material can be converted into durable hollow blocks and bricks? Just imagine all the garbage you can get rid off if the garbage is turned into durable bricks that can be used for building houses. Bricks made of garbage is actually more durable than cement bricks. recycling can end pollution and poverty.

That's a great idea. But is it working in any places?

@shshiju There are NGO's that uses it as a humanitarian an ecological charity cause. Oh in Taiwan there is a charity where they collect plastic trash and recycle it into polyster fabric that is turned into clothes and blankets that were distributed to victims of natural disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis.
