An environmental expert in a brief interview stated that India’s waste problem can only be resolved if it revolutionizes the way waste is treated and adopts a smarter waste management system; instead of dumping all the waste in landfills, recycling is the way to go.
Since every change starts at the individual level we must start recycling at the household level. True that recycling companies can sort recyclables through landfills but that requires a huge amount of capital and time.
DCC has taken the initiative to help households recycle their waste and take ‘Swacch Bharat Abhiyan’ to next level. So, next time instead of throwing everything away in the garbage bin, sell your recyclables to us and be a part of the beautiful change.
The first step in waste recycling is to learn what can and can’t be recycled. Next, you need to learn how to separate them so they can be sent to the correct recycling facility. Some of the most common products found in the home environment are listed below.

Some of the most common products found in the home environment are listed below.
- Paper – Paper waste includes items such as school papers, cardboard, magazines, newspapers and anything else that is considered a paper product. These should be bundled all together and disposed of in paper containers.
- Plastics – Plastics are a very common household waste that is one of the hardest to dispose of. It’s important to recycle plastics because these products will stay in the landfills for many years making them very damaging to the environment.
- Glass – Recycling glass has to be done according to the laws governing the region and state in which you live. Make sure you find out what these are in advance.
- Organic Waste – Organic waste includes tree clippings and leaves that need to be disposed of. These can be recycled and used as compost for growing gardens and lawns.
- Metal – Most homes won’t have metal waste on a regular basis but occasionally you may have items that need to be recycled. Some areas have programs designed especially for metals.
