Sonu Madhyan commented on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle of "FOOD WASTE"

Plant waste is broken down by bacteria in landfill, greenhouse gases are produced. When food and plant waste is broken down by bacteria in a compost system that is regularly ‘turned’ to provide the bacteria with oxygen, the harmful greenhouse gases are not formed. Composting or recycling food and garden waste can reduce an individual’s waste by 50%, this means a reduction in landfill of around 560kg each year per person.
