Green waste is defined as a biodegradable waste that is mostly composed of garden waste or park waste. It is divided into two classes, the food and garden green waste. There are different types of green waste: flowers, garden weeds, plants, litter, grass cuttings, timber, soil, hedge clippings, turf, small branches, twigs, trees, and leaves. The flower green wastes are composed of different flowers that have dried off and are no longer useful for the owner of the garden. Garden weed wastes are composed of plants that are undesired and are not part of the garden plants. Plant green wastes are unwanted plants that grow into the garden, or plants that are no longer useful for the owner of the garden. The litter green wastes are wastes that are thrown into the garden and are biodegradable. Grass cutting wastes are plant cuttings that have been produced after doing lawn mowing. The timber green wastes are part or parts of the wood that are no longer used or have been found to have no use at all. Soil green wastes are soils that no longer bear vitamins and minerals that are essential for the growth of plants. The hedge clippings waste is a type of green waste that is produced when hedges are being shaped up. Turf wastes are wastes that are composed of dried leaves, roots and soil. Small leaves, twigs, and leaves green wastes are wastes that have been parts of plants that have been cut off or have dried out.
As you can see, green wastes are composed of biodegradable materials. These biodegradable materials if improperly disposed will cause production of methane and other odorous gases, which has a 25% contribution on causing global warming. This makes the process of waste segregation very important for every household and even commercial establishments.
One good way of helping the environment is by separating your green waste from your non biodegradable wastes that should end up on the landfill. You can give your green wastes to authorised processing plants, and have them process it to turn them into compost. Or if you are too busy with your life, you can ask for green waste removal services. They can deliver green bag to your homes, where you can easily separate your green waste.
These wastes are produced by every household in the world, and since global warming can affect us all, it is our responsibility to practice green waste removal.
