Establishment of Recycling Plants
The process of repurposing useful materials that have been discarded is known as recycling. These materials and resources are then extracted/recovered, or converted to energy in the form of useable heat, power, or fuel, which can help reduce landfill volume, water and air pollution, and the greenhouse effect.
Separation/Segregation of Waste
Automatic waste segregation machines make use of a variety of sorting means to separate organic matter, plastics, metal, bricks and stones and other substances out from garbage to the maximum to improve the reusing and recycling of waste. At the same time, the separated waste materials can be further re-processed into useful resources.
Central Sewage System
Instead of septic tanks, families can choose for a Central Sewage system, which is less expensive and more effective at waste management. Thermal energy is converted to electrical energy through the operation of a turbine. As a byproduct, methane gas may potentially be utilized as a fuel.
“The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.”
