Plastic Harms The Environment – Avoid Before Recycling

The adverse effects of plastic on the environment start with production. With the help of chemical processes, plastics are made from crude oil, coal, or plants. The smallest plastic particles constantly end up in the air, the soil, and the groundwater. The disposal of plastic is also problematic for the environment since not all waste is recycled, and the material does not decompose through biological degradation processes.

Because of the harmful effects of plastic on the environment: avoid before recycle. Every household, business, and retailer should strive to reduce plastic products. For example, when packaging products, consider whether you can reuse used films before they end up in the trash. It is often tough to completely avoid plastic waste. The correct separation and plastic waste disposal (การ กำจัด ขยะ พลาสติก which is the term in Thai) are therefore all the more important in terms of the environment. When it comes to disposing of hard plastic properly, the multitude of different colored garbage cans can lead to confusion. We’ll show you how to sort hard plastic waste properly.

Dispose Of Hard Plastic Properly.

Where can I dispose of plastic waste?

Since plastics always consist of different chemical compositions, there is no specific recommendation for which bin they belong in. You generally dispose of household waste such as packaging in the yellow bin. The packaging waste in industrial companies must also be disposed of using the yellow bin. Other small plastic waste, such as toothbrushes or ballpoint pens, should be disposed of with the general waste. Bulky plastic products, such as old garden furniture, are a case for bulky waste or recycling centers.

Plastic is not just plastic.

In soft plastic packaging, it is common knowledge that it can be disposed of in the yellow bin or the yellow sack.

However, when it comes to hard plastic, some consumers are unsure. This category includes, for example, disposable dishes or empty detergent and cleaning agent bottles.

Yogurt cups or a disused cleaning bucket made of plastic and clothespins and toothbrushes are made of hard plastic.

You can dispose of all these everyday objects in the yellow recycling bin or the yellow recycling sack without any problems.

It looks different with larger objects. It would help if you did not simply put a broken plastic garden chair, plastic toilet seat, or laundry tub next to the yellow bin. Such items are bulky waste. You can hand them in at the recycling center.
