Green and blue are the colors that define the earth when you view the planet way up from space. The lush green vegetation and the pristine blue waters play a harmonious and often elusive role in creating life as we see it today. So, any waste that is termed ‘green’ is least likely to cause potentially hazardous level of pollution if left alone an unattended. Basically any yard waste like grass clippings, hedge clippings, leaves, pruned branches etc form a part of green waste. These wastes are bio degradable in nature and only add to the nutrition of the soil after decomposing.
However, not many households, hotels and resorts, corporate buildings etc that maintain a green space producing such wastes have enough time, energy or even space to arrange proper compost pits that can make quality fertilizers of the same. So, more often than not, these otherwise useful organic materials of the earth land up sealed in plastic bags waiting to be collected at the end of the week. While the process of decomposition continues to take place in the sealed plastic bag as well, the waste tends to produce a lot of toxic methane gas when subjected to such confined artificial spaces. When the bags are finally opened, these toxic gases get released into the atmosphere causing considerable pollution.
On many occasions it has also been seen that these wastes are dumped in some lonely corner or of they are dry enough, they are piled up and set on fire. This is an extremely wasteful approach to handling these useful refuses. So, basically if you find yourself wondering how to be responsible with your share of green wastes, all you have to do is call upon the services of reliable waste management agencies like the providers of green waste disposal in Sydney. These providers usually have their own terms and conditions for waste collection and may hand out a list of instructions as to how you should manage your green refuse before handing it over to the service providers.
The list of instructions usually include not mixing you’re the green waste with regular wastes, be it kitchen waste, paper waste or any other recyclable or non recyclable products as such. Inclusion of anything glass or plastic is a strict no-no. At the same time, you may also be required to ensure that your green waste does not lay packed in a non breathable plastic bag where it rots beyond further use.
