For our house to be sustainable and respectful of the environment, we must use energy efficiently since it is a precious asset. To achieve this, recycling is necessary. But, how do I separate my garbage from recycling it?

How To Separate Garbage

We can mainly divide the garbage into Organic and Inorganic. The Organic is one that decomposes and comes from a living being. Inorganic waste comes from human-made materials such as plastics, glass or metals. Once classified, let’s see how we should separate it for recycling:

Organic Trash

Organic waste is the remains of food and any misuse of plants or animals. Did you know that at least 40% of the trash that you throw into the garbage can daily is the organic matter? Organic waste is biodegradable and can be used as organic fertilizer. The best-known way to recycle organic waste is through compost.

Metal

Tin cans and other types of metals are a non-renewable resource. This type of materials has a very successful recovery. For example, with the energy needed to make a can of soda, you could have a television on for two hours. You can recycle the metal at recycling points in your city.

We must recycle old notebooks and all the paper we can. In the same way, we must use paper that is already recycled, in this way we avoid excessive felling.

Plastic

The recovery of plastic is essential as it is a non-biodegradable material. We should never throw it out of its recycling circuit.

Glass

The best thing is to deposit the bottles or glass jars in the containers authorized for such use in the cities. In this way, it is possible to close the circle and produce a bottle from which it is thrown.

We must pay particular attention to this type of packaging since they are manufactured with 75% cardboard, 20% plastic and 5% aluminum. It has to be recycled in specialized sites and can not be reused.

Finally, make a special mention to polluting materials such as batteries and fluorescents.

Recycling Containers

Once the garbage is separated correctly, you have to know in which bin to put everything. In the green bins, we would throw the materials made with glass, such as bottles, perfume bottles or canning jars.
