What is Waste?

Waste is the name given to everything that we throw away. After it is collected from your rubbish bin, some waste is burned, but most of it is buried in big holes in the ground called landfill sites. This causes problems because both burning and burying release chemicals which are bad for the environment. We are also running out of places to bury rubbish!

Reducing the amount of waste we produce has many benefits:

  1. It conserves valuable resources, including forests, minerals, petroleum, and energy.
  2. It saves money.
  3. It helps the environment, because it reduces the amount of pollution, greenhouse gases, and disturbance of nature.
