5 Ways To Safely Dispose of Trash If You’ve Missed Bin Day

Waste disposal is a task that requires time and effort to removing. Sometimes you may have had a long and tiring day at work or simply been extremely busy with a large project that you forget to take the bin out. Getting rid of rubbish at home can become a bit complicated when you’ve just missed bin day for the week. However, there are a few ways you can dispose trash more easily.

In this article, we will share 5 ways to safely dispose your trash if you’ve missed bin day.

  1. Composting

If your home consists of a garden or backyard where you grow plants, using natural waste to create compost is a good choice. You can use plenty of different types of organic materials in order to create the compost. The materials can include:

  • Peels of vegetables and fruits
  • Remains of fruits
  • Shredded paper
  • Crushed eggshells

The use of compost can eliminate the need for external fertiliser. This will also help you grow the plants organically rather than with the help of chemicals. It is a good way to dispose of the organic waste matter.

Pro tip: Adding crushed eggshells to your compost ensures that the plants will be protected from slugs, snails and other pests with the help of that compost.

  1. Sanitary Landfill

The above option is good enough for the organic waste matter. However, this brings up a pertinent question: what should you do with the trash you cannot dispose of with other methods? The easiest solution for that type of trash is to use it in a sanitary landfill. When you take up an area for a landfill, you have first to use a protective lining at the bottom. With the help of this protective lining, any liquids or chemicals will not drain into the water table below. With the help of a landfill, you can dispose of the waste easily without the need to classify it.

Pro tip: If you do not want to use a layer beneath, you can opt for creating a landfill in the area, which consists of soil with low permeability.

  1. Incineration

Incineration is a simple method to dispose of your trash. It is a fancy way to say you should burn your trash. Incineration is an affordable way to dispose of your trash. The expenses incurred are on the lower side.

Moreover, it can reduce the volume of waste by at least 90%. In fact, if you’re incinerating the organic matter, the ashes produced will have soil nutrients. This method is especially useful if any toxic materials are in the waste.

  1. Encapsulation

Encapsulation is similar to landfilling. However, the technique is different. It consists of plastic drums filling up to 75% of waste. After that, sand or cement is used on top. Thereafter, the entire container is used in a landfill. The container can be installed in the ground itself, which ensures that you do not have to use a separate area for landfill. With the help of this mixture, it will become easier for you to eliminate a significant quantity of waste.

Pro tip: If you do not want to opt for a plastic drum, you can opt for the cement-lined pits.

  1. Animal Feed

Organic waste matter can also be used for your pets. It can be used as an animal feed. You need to retain the vegetable peels, fruits, and leftover veggies for your pets. If you have bones in the waste, you can give them to your dog as long as they are unbroken. If you live in a rural area, it will be easier for you to find livestock around. More often than not, most organic matter can be used as animal feed.

Just because you’ve missed your bin day doesn’t mean getting rid of your rubbish has to be daunting. You can use any of the above 5 techniques to do so.
