All your household waste doesn’t have to end up in a landfill. There are many means of managing household waste that are better for the environment and can also be good for your home’s functioning. Here are a few smart eco-friendly options for your household waste.

Make Money from Unwanted Items and Materials

It’s true that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and you may find people who are interested in buying some of your household waste for recycling purposes. Aluminum and other forms of scrap metal along with paper and plastic can earn you money if they’re recycled. You can also try selling old furniture and electronics that you wish to get rid of instead of disposing them in the trash.

Use Waste Items for Arts and Crafts Projects

If you have a knack for creating arts and crafts or have kids who need supplies for school projects, utilizing certain items from your household waste can be a smart decision. Empty soda cans and water bottles can be turned into creative planters that act as pots for growing flowers and other household plants. Plastic bottlecaps often work well as additions for handmade beaded curtains. Old newspaper and other wastepaper can also be used for a variety of projects.

Find Ways to Reuse Wastewater

You may be surprised when you realize exactly how much water for your home goes to waste that could have still gone to good use. A reliable wastewater treatment system can work well for reusing water for purposes of watering your lawn and plants. If you’re looking for ways to reduce the amount of wastewater that you generate, try taking shorter showers and installing water-efficient faucets, toilets and washers.

Turn Waste into Compost

Food scraps, coffee grounds and nutshells can all be used to make compost to fertilize your soil. You can purchase a composter and put your waste in it so that it can be turned into suitable compost material. Even shredded newspaper, tissues and lint that comes from all-natural material (such as cotton) can make great compost. It’s also possible to formulate compost out of dead leaves and other debris in your yard.

Finding ways to manage your household waste in a more environmentally responsible manner can pay dividends when it comes to helping the planet. These clever and simple methods for managing your household waste can also add more convenience to your life
