THE BENEFITS OF SUSTAINABLE WASTE DISPOSAL
Why Is It So Important To Reuse And Recycle?
As a business creating bulk loads of waste, it is so important that you are disposing of the materials sustainably. Without a proper recycling program in place, much of your waste materials will end up in landfill sites. This means that the waste generated will fester here, emitting harmful toxins damaging our earths atmosphere.
By recycling waste you will also save raw materials from being overused in the production of products. These valuable natural materials are suffering from the rate of which we are extracting them, and with the amount of waste produced we can repurpose materials to save these resources. Not only will this help to reduce waste but also save wildlife and habitats from being damaged during the extraction of resources: this is prominently seen in deforestation for paper.
Whilst waste festering pollutes the air, wind and rainwater can also carry materials into surrounding environments such as the ocean. Here, we are seeing the dier impact it is having, specifically in relation to plastic in our waters. Whilst the materials fill up our oceans sea life is harmed: There are approximately 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic waste in our oceans.
