Q. 23

Waste Disposal an

Answer :


Biodegradable wastes are wastes that decompose or degrade naturally into simpler components.

Non-biodegradable wastes are wastes that cannot be decomposed easily into simpler forms.

There is a greater concern of managing non-biodegradable waste in comparison to biodegradable hosts because non-biodegradable wastes produce toxic products which are released into the environment leading to pollution.


Two ways that are likely to be discussed with fellow members to organize for a 'Zero Garbage Day once in a month in the school would include:

a) Avoiding usage of products like plastics, tin cans which are non-biodegradable and also ensuring their proper disposal whenever one comes across such products in the school's vicinity.

b) Ensuring proper recycling of items like papers by organizing various activities like 'Best out of Waste' competitions where the items can be reused to create new items.
