  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Garbage is an unwanted or undesired material or substance </li></ul><ul><li>It is also referred to as rubbish, trash or junk </li></ul>Common rubbish in a bin bag A dumpster full of waste awaiting disposal
  3. 3. How do we deal with Garbage? Landfill Safai karamcharis collect the garbage in trucks and take it to a low lying open area, called a landfill
  4. 4. The garbage at the landfill is separated as Useful component The part of the garbage that can be re-used is the useful component . This component is then treated by different processes to make it non-toxic Non- Useful component The part of the garbage that cannot be used is the non-useful component which is then separated and spread over the landfill and covered with a layer of soil

They have a structure called ‘gizzard’, which helps them in grinding their food Redworms do not survive in very hot or very cold surroundings They also need moisture around them The Worms are put into the pit containing the useful component of the garbage The Worms then convert the garbage into useable compost that can be used in gardens or fields for the plants and crops
