Recycle. Except nuclear waste. That must be stored for half a billion years, preferebly above ground, where we can keep an eye on it.

We'll be well gone from this place by then.

The ruined remains of Chernobyl have become a source of several environmental mysteries. Rapid adaptation of rodents, the swift return of nature and now extremely happy fungi that seem to be feeding on waste radiation.

According to the research of some folks at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Cryptococcus neoformans is converting radiation into fuel. This could mean that fungus is the solution to two of our greatest environmental problems, lack of fuel and too much radioactive waste.

All we need to do is surround our nuclear waste with this radiation-eating fungus and then harvest it every once in a while to produce some kind of bio-fuel. I doubt we have enough radioactive waste to feed enough fungus to run America's automobile fleet, but that's hardly something to complain about.

It looks like melanin (the same melanin found in human skin) plays the roll of chlorophyl in this 'radiosynthesis.' After taking in the radio waves, the melanin starts off a reaction that allows the fungus to grow. The scientists speculate that the fungus could be used for bio-fuel farms in high-altitude areas with low-light and high-radiation. Or they could be food for astronauts on long-haul, nuclear-powered missions.

One good method is by heating the waste at high temperature so that the final product is lesser in quantity and size. It's a good method and is currently being practiced, i don't know the name sorry.

Why not recycle those what you think are trash into something new? It only demands a creative and artistic mind to do this task. Doy packs can be use to become a useful shoulder bag. Think those old newspapers already a crap? Well think again! You can transform those craps into attractive origami figures and use as a decoration inside your room.

What you gonna do with the old clothes? Well, old does not automatically mean ‘crap’. You may have new clothes that are why your old clothes don’t have enough space in your closet and you now need to send them off now. Why not arrange them orderly in a bag and donate them to the needy? There are still those who need your old stuff. See, you are able to help others, and minimizing your surplus items as well.

Used appliances and furniture? Yikes! It will eat up a huge space in your place if not abolished immediately. If these enormous items are a total crap for you, why not give them to a friend or send it to a thrift store and let them manage about everything.

Do you have unused or excess house renovating materials such as paint, cement, drywall, and asphalt? These items cannot be easily eradicated and throw into dumpsters because cities like Alberta, Edmonton, and Calgary do have certain restrictions when doing garbage disposal. In these cases, it would be best to call our junk removal specialists buddies. They are the one who’s knowledgeable and responsible in this type of activity.
Are you fond of cleaning your patio? There are also litters that came from your backyard like small tree branches, dried leaves, that can be bagged and send to trash.

Disposable diapers, napkins, used medical products such as bandage, injections, and the like are of serious crap. These should not be mixed up with other trash. These will cause serious diseases and infections if not disposed of properly. Have it segregated from other stuff and inform the garbage disposal personnel to separate those materials from others to avoid the possible spread of diseases.

Proper waste disposal and management is possible and easy if we are just taught to do. If all people around the world practice the right way of garbage disposal, in a few years or later, we will able to live in a healthy environment. It’s not impossible to happen. It’s a matter of time and discipline.

As seen on MNn -mother nature network

Boy discovers microbe that eats plastic.

PhDs have been searching for a solution to the plastic waste problem, and this 16-year-old finds the answer.

It's not your average science fair when the 16-year-old winner manages to solve a global waste crisis. But such was the case at last month's Canadian Science Fair in Waterloo, Ontario, where Daniel Burd, a high school student at Waterloo Collegiate Institute, presented his research on microorganisms that can rapidly biodegrade plastic.

Daniel had a thought it seems even the most esteemed PhDs hadn't considered. Plastic, one of the most indestructible of manufactured materials, does in fact eventually decompose. It takes 1,000 years but decompose it does, which means there must be microorganisms out there to do the decomposing.

Could those microorganisms be bred to do the job faster?

That was Daniel's question which he put to the test by a very simple and clever process of immersing ground plastic in a yeast solution that encourages microbial growth, and then isolating the most productive organisms.

The preliminary results were encouraging, so he kept at it, selecting out the most effective strains and interbreeding them. After several weeks of tweaking and optimizing temperatures Burd was able to achieve a 43 percent degradation of plastic in six weeks, an almost inconceivable accomplishment.

With 500 billion plastic bags manufactured each year and a Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch that grows more expansive by the day, a low cost and nontoxic method for degrading plastic is the stuff of environmentalists' dreams and, I would hazard a guess, a pretty good start-up company as well.

It is very good and appreciated idea of recycling. But to be very cheap i have an idea to use it properly. Firstly organic and in organic wastes should be separated and allowed to decompose. Organic waste would be helpful in Biogas plant and farming too. Inorganic substance would be decompose and can be used in industries.

Waste disposal is best way to keep the place clean and after doing recycling it also come in use and due to this many problem not occur we live free and the disease also not occur

Waste Disposal is the Very Major Problem Nowadays .We Must Have to do the Proper Disposal of the Waste.There are Some Proper Method for the Waste Disposal.

- OCEAN DUMPING.
- SANITARY LANDFILL.
- INCINERATION .
- OPEN DUMPING.
- RECYCLING.

Try to reuse products. If you do not have a recycling program in your community or if the material or product is not currently recyclable, try to find another use for the product rather than throwing it away.
