To rubbish the fact that the rubbish you produce on a daily basis is actually rubbish would be a very unwise thing to do. This is certainly something that the enlightened planet conscious people of the 21st century would never do today. These are difficult times with billions of people leading complex lives complete with facilities that were not even existent a century ago. Each of these facilities starting from the usage of toilet papers to sending rockets to space has been causing expending of valuable resources of the earth some of which can never be recovered ever again.
Leaving the matter of irrecoverable resources alone for a while, let’s focus on the stuff that can actually be recovered and put to use once again after proper treatment in respective plants. For many individuals it may come as news, but the gold actually lies in your trash. It may not be the aurum (au) to make statement neckpieces for you, but certainly full of the otherwise depleting resources that can be recovered and returned for reuse without having to dig out more from the heart of the planet.
The good news is, you don’t have to sit and scour though your trash to identify the reusable stuff. The task is best left to the waste collection / rubbish removal agencies that take the burden on their shoulders to carry the refuse to the places they are most likely to get the treatment they deserve. The haulers as you may call them are vested with the responsibility of relieving you of your bit and carry the lot to their respective plants where they are processed and brought back to life.
The question though that you as a responsible inhabitant of Earth need to ask yourself is whether you are doing your bit to make things easy for the haulers? When you make things easy for the haulers, it becomes easier for them to promote their cause of reducing, reusing and recycling for the sake of the planet. For this, all you have to do is as little as collecting your organic waste, paper waste and universal waste in different bins and preferably labeling it so that they can be identified at the time of hauling them.
Reputed and established agencies like the agencies of rubbish removal in Sydney shoulder the responsibility of educating people about how to be responsible with the waste that is produced in their households on an everyday basis. a tip or two taken from them will be a tip or two taken for a better tomorrow.
