What is segregation?
Segregation is the separation of wet and dry wastes in order to dispose them safely.
Household wastes consist of organic biodegradable matter as well as non-biodegradable matter. They should be segregated from each other using separate bins. Wherever possible, the non-biodegradable matter is recycled and used.
The organic biodegradable matter i.e. wet waste must be separated from other dry wastes. They are collected by municipal workers and transported to a landfill.
