In order to achieve successful recycling, recyclables must be able to compete well with virgin materials both in quality and cost amlon group. Costs of the collection process determine the price of refined and recycled products. How collection, including sorting, is done affects the quality. The waste is not normally collected in an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective manner in the United States. The cost of solid waste recycling is heavily influenced by the collection of waste materials and their segregation. The country’s typical practice up to this point has been that the government collects mixed waste materials, and then disposes of them in landfills not properly sanitary or marked out for control of leachate. The practice of dumping waste in landfills that are not sanitary or environmentally friendly is neither safe, nor efficient. The practice doesn’t allow waste to be recycled, which would conserve valuable resources. Guest Posting Scavengers from the lower social strata, who are often poor and unemployed, will go to such landfills for recyclables like plastics and metals scraps. They do this at great risk to their health.
Diverse techniques are available to segregate and transfer recyclable fractions in blended wastes into recycling centers. Many of these technologies are not cost-efficient and practical in many parts of the globe. First, the waste is segregated at homes using the appropriate storage systems. The second situation is where mixed wastes collected from the households are sent into designated sorting centres, and individuals will separate them. After sorting, recyclables will be sent into a recycling center for further processing. Non-recyclables will then go to landfills. The cost of the first program is less. In most cases, waste providers can bring recyclables to recycling facilities without incurring costs for the disposal of waste. These wastes are usually purchased at predetermined prices and brought to the recycling center. Separate clients are sometimes needed to collect waste materials and recover the material. In most cases, the buyers pay in cash or barter to generators. These buyers, also known as “paaro” (which means exchange in Yoruba), trade plastic pails for used clothing, jewellery and shoe materials. Even waste collection crews can sort waste to quickly get rid of valuable material from waste streams on their way to landfill. The situation can also be manipulated poorly.
Transport and variety of waste have an excellent impact on segregation. The co-collection occurs when the segregated fractions from home owners are collected in one vehicle. The segregated method of collection occurs when fractions from different vehicles are combined. The co-collection process can also be carried out in two ways. Multi-compartment vehicles can be used for the simultaneous transport of sorted waste. The household can bag each part of the separated wastes and transport them in one compartment. A third option would be to alternate between a collection of one type of wastes today, and the next day a completely different kind. Nigeria and other developing nations are not able to afford a single vehicle that can be used for a specific waste type. Cost-benefit isn’t the third possibility either.
Last but not the least, while compounded garbage collection by Nigerian authorities from local communities may appear to be simpler than it is in reality at times, they can cause separation problems when recycling. Transport of sort waste from household can cause difficulties in collection and transport, yet ensures better operations at reduced costs. Now is the time to decide on the best segregation system and transportation scheme for the entire country. It is important to consider the techniques that encourage recycling of waste and recovering materials as a long-term strategy for persistent waste problems in the country. Wastes should be segregated by household, then bagged up and moved in an uni-compartment vehicle. In addition, the government must also think of an intermediate sorting centre where all waste materials are sorted before being transported to recycling centers. The government can generate a lot of income from this. The transportation of waste from household can cause difficulties in collection and transport, yet it guarantees a more efficient operation for recycling facilities at lowered costs. Now is the time to decide on the best segregation system and transport plan for the entire country. It is important to consider the techniques that encourage recycling of waste and recovery of materials as a long-term strategy for persistent waste problems in the country. Wastes should be separated at the household level, then bagged up and transported by one vehicle compartment. Secondly, the government must also think of an intermediate sorting centre where mixed wastes are sorted before final transport into recycling facilities. It is a great way to generate income for unemployed and jobless young people.
