Inorganic garbage: examples for children

Although it is a concept that can be made broader or more closed depending on the person who uses it, garbage is all those waste, waste, materials or products that no longer have any use, cannot be repaired and do not have any type of monetary value.

But, did you know that there are different types of garbage depending on its origin and nature? In the following AgroCorrn article we are going to talk specifically about inorganic garbage, giving you some examples for children .

What is organic and inorganic waste

Garbage is a very broad word, since it includes a series of very heterogeneous waste. Although in most cases they are solid, they can also exist at a liquid level. These materials and products arise as a consequence of different human and animal activities.

But not all garbage is the same, it can be distinguished in many different ways, something necessary to be able to recycle it correctly, however, at a general level, the two main types of garbage that exist are:

  • Inorganic garbage : this category includes all that garbage that does not have a biological origin. This is precisely the most polluting group, since as it has a synthetic or plastic origin, either in whole or in part, it is much more difficult for them to degrade and take a long time to disappear. In general, although it is also produced at a domestic level, the largest amount of organic waste is generated by industry.
  • Organic garbage : it is all the garbage that has a biological origin, that is, it is mostly the remains of food and food products that are not consumed in restaurants and homes. Compared to inorganic garbage, they are not so complicated to process, since they decompose easily and can be used as compost, however, if not done well, they can cause disease and contamination.

Thus, by way of summary, we could say that organic garbage is that which comes from a living being, while inorganic garbage is that which does not have this origin. Similarly, while organic waste degrades and disintegrates in the environment very quickly, inorganic waste takes years and even decades to disintegrate.

Types of inorganic garbage

But as we have commented previously, garbage is not only distinguished between organic and inorganic, in fact, just by looking at the containers in your city you will see that there are many ways of differences and distinguish the waste generated by humans.

Thus, within inorganic garbage we can also distinguish two subgroups , we will explain them below:

  • Recyclable inorganic garbage : these are all those that, through waste management, can be recycled and reused. From an ecological point of view, this type of garbage is much more desirable than that which cannot be recycled.
  • Non-recyclable inorganic garbage : unlike the previous group, the waste that falls within this subgroup cannot be recycled or degraded in the environment. This is a big problem of planetary magnitude, since we have no way of being able to reuse them and the one way to manage them and prevent them from having an unwanted impact on the environment is to group them in sealed containers.

Organic and inorganic waste: recycling

As we have been explaining throughout the article, it is absolutely necessary to separate between organic and inorganic waste so that it can properly treat, recycle and reuse all those elements that are likely to go through this process. In recent years much progress has been made in this regard and the differentiation between waste is increasing, however, we are still a long way from being able to recycle all the waste that is generated.

The ideal would be not to generate inorganic garbage, especially that which cannot be recycled, but until that is achieved we must have a waste management competent enough to be able to distinguish between all that garbage that which contains elements that can be reused and avoided. that the rest is not lost polluting the environment.

Regarding organic waste , through recycling we manage to reintegrate this waste into nature (through organic compost ), produce biomass energy and organic fuels or use it as animal feed.

On the other hand, inorganic waste goes through a process of discernment in which those recyclable parts are separated, those parts of the waste that can be reused and those waste that simply must be stored in a container waiting for it to be future there is a technology capable of giving it a new life.
