Why is it important for materials to biodegrade faster?



  1. 0 Votes

    The faster something biodegrades, the faster it turns from something that could be considered waste into usefull nutrients for plants. Therefore, if something does biodegrade, but it takes so long to do so that it is not a viable way of dealing with said object as garbage, then it may be referred to as non-biodegradable.

    When things bidegrade quickly they also take up less room in our landfill and dumps. Also, some cities and counties compost all the biodegradable material that comes in with the refuse service. For example, in San Francisco, every household has a garbage can, a recycling can and a compost can. Residents can even be fined for putting items in the wrong bin.
