We can find various instances from our daily life where we can re-use and re-cycle household wastes.


Empty bottles of jam, pickles, vinegar can be used to store spices

Waste water from RO purifiers can be used for washing clothes, cars, etc.


Old newspapers, sheets, aluminium cans, plastic can be sent to factories to be recycled. But these wastes need to be segregated first.
