Find out the best way to reduce waste and become green

Today the topic of the article of our green guide on separate collection of rubbish is how to dispose of the organic waste, an ecosustainable resource very precious if we consider that the main feature is being biodegradable. Recycling, recovery, reuse: the three R of ecosustainability. In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything is transformed and reused!

Once the organic waste is processed industrially the final product that is obtained is the compost, an excellent topsoil that can be used properly as fertilizer for plants and flowers but also in organic farming, avoiding the use of chemical fertilizers. Less waste in city more quality in country and in what we eat!

And those who are lucky enough to have a house with garden or live in country there is no better green practice than to make composting by oneself. The first thing to do is to choose the best area to make the heap, possibly to the sun in winter and to the shade in summer. Then once it is placed it has to be checked periodically and turned up to oxygenate and mix the material.

Instead who does not have the opportunity to make composting, simply can disposes of the organic waste in the specially provided bin. What can we put in the organic waste bin? Food scraps, fruits and vegetables scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds and tea filters, leaves and flowers, garden waste, blotting paper, paper towels and napkins, food stained paper and cardboard, bread paper bag.

We recommend to drain the organic waste and place the rubbish in the provided bin without pressing. Another shrewdness is to divide into small pieces the most voluminous waste so as to save space and optimize the use of bags that, here we underline, must be rigorously eco-friendly, so compostable, biodegradable and certified.
