SEAToday.com, Jakarta - Sorting household waste into organic and non-organic categories is crucial to reducing waste generation and promoting a greener environment. But what exactly is non-organic waste?

According to the Buleleng Regency Government's Environmental Service website, non-organic waste refers to discarded materials that are difficult to decompose. Because of its persistent nature, non-organic waste can accumulate in landfills and lead to soil contamination. This prolonged decomposition damages soil layers.

Examples of non-organic waste include plastic, beverage bottles or cans, plastic bags, used tires, metal, glass, cables, electronics, light bulbs, and more. While non-organic waste may decompose slowly, it can be repurposed.

Non-organic waste can be transformed into handicrafts or other valuable items. For instance, plastic waste can be used to create bags, tablecloths, or decorative items.

Waste Management Practice

Incorporating the 3Rs (Reuse, Reduce, Recycle) principle into daily routines is an effective waste management strategy. The 3Rs system can be implemented by anyone at any time. Managing waste with the 3Rs requires dedication and awareness of the potential health hazards of improper waste disposal.

1. Reuse

Reuse involves using waste items directly for their original purpose or a different one.

2. Reduce

Reducing entails minimizing activities that generate waste.

3. Recycle

Recycling involves processing waste materials for reuse through various stages.

By adopting the 3Rs principle, individuals can contribute significantly to waste reduction, resource conservation, and environemental protection.
