Wet waste

Simple as that… our wet waste consists mostly of organic waste such as food, soiled diapers and other “damp” materials. And the dry waste consists of solid and recyclable materials which can be further separated into three groups: plastic, paper and other. Accordingly, trash of each category and subcategory should be collected in separate trash bags or bins.

So usually the wet waste will be collected in plastic bags and then go the trash bin outside our house compound. Then the dry waste like newspapers, paper packaging, files, book, plastics bottles, glass bottles and other we will separate accordingly to the category of paper, plastics, glass and others.

Practice waste segregation and management at home

Here is how do I practice waste segregation and management at home? I keep separate containers for dry and wet waste in the kitchen. The wet waste will go straight to the plastic bag and the dry waste will go into the separate boxes. The wet waste will go to the trash bin outside of the house compound every evening but the dry waste we will accumulate till certain amount then sell it or donate it to the recycling centers.

  11. Nice! I really do applaud out government for taking this initiative to promote recycling and make it compulsory.
    It is long overdue as we spend so much money on waste management when it can make money instead.

  12. At the risk of sounding like a broken record... hahaahah ...I believe the government should be more strict on this.. I was in Germany and Netherlands 15 years or so ago and they were already implementing it with a fine if it was not done.. even our no plastic bag day is confusing, kejap ada, kejap tak ada... they should just make it everyday a no plastic bag day and urge people to bring their own bags or use cartons or if really neccessary then pay for the plastic bags... all these were happening 15 years ago or longer in Germany and Europe...

  13. If the West could do it, I think we could perform better. And the practice should start at home, enhance in schools and embrace by the country. Then we will be saving the world for our kids!
