Name biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste?
Biodegradable waste is a type of waste which can be broken down, in a reasonable amount of time, into its base compounds by micro-organisms and other living things, regardless of what those compounds may be. E.g. green waste, food waste, paper waste
Non biodegradable waste is waste that cannot be broken down naturally either by air, climate, moisture or soil. This kind of waste cannot be naturally dissolved into the land. Some of the most common non biodegradable products are plastic bags, detergent, sulphur,[IOM 2063] bottles, tin cans and even computer hardware.
