This has become very important specially for the cities and towns. I have seen in London they have seperate containers for emply plastic/glass bottles, kitchen waste, garden waste and other waste.
Plastics/glass/paper is recycled. Kitchen waste is used for composting manure and garden waste is used appropriately.
In India cities and towns also, there should be seperate containers (in fact these containers are made of recycled plastics) and people should be told to put different type of waste in different containers/bags seperately so that there is no trouble for the corporation/municipal/panchayat persons collecting the waste to sort out the waste.
Those who have some space can also have small composting pits and instead of buying manure for garden plants and kitchen gardens, they can use the compost manure for the same which gives excellent results. Incentives should be given for those who have their own composting pits.
Unless we go for recycling and using some of the usable w ...more

Waste management in a city like Mumbai is a must. Otherwise we will soon be surrounded by mounds of garbage. Monhenja daro got buried under silt, Pompeii got buried under ash, we will be buried under garbage if we do not recycle it.
We should seaprate our garbage into recyclable and non recyclable. Convert our kitchen waste into compost and plastics , rubber wastes can be reclaimed and converted into different products.

Every neighbourhood should have public toilets which use human excreta to make biogas for sale.

Consider earth as a space ship with very good closed door systems. Consider a waste management system that simply uses moving the garbage into a corner or under the carpet. How well do you think that will work over time? That is what we are doing right now. Recycling is the key to waste management and that is lacking as of now (not enough).

Waste management is highly important, otherwise, one would be surrounded by stinking garbage. My suggestions are as follows.
1. Avoid disposables as far as possible - Like coffee can be had in porcelain cups instead of disposable cups - However, hygiene comes first - This rule does nto overlook hygeinic practices.
2. Think before you print - As a matter of fact, most of the garbage from office consists of papers.
