Garbage Exhibit

Friday, July 27th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Garbage Exhibit

On the Fourth of July here in Toledo, they tried skipping a day of garbage collection to cut down on the city’s costs. Now, while I don’t think it worked out very well, it got me thinking about garbage. So, I went looking for information on it and what I found was this Web site! The site not only discusses how we handle waste management, but it asks the question of how can our communities reduce waste? Let’s find out, shall we?!

You’ll find navigation on the left side menu and in the middle of the page, you’ll find the introduction and a starting point. On the right hand side, you’ll find Science in Focus: Energy and the link to a free workshop about it.

The menu contains the following sections:

Solid Waste – Here you can learn all about our every day trash. Did you know the average American makes 4.6 pounds of trash a day? I sure didn’t!

Hazardous Waste – Here you’ll learn about what qualifies as hazardous waste, as well as, why it has to be disposed of carefully. There is a quiz here that will test your knowledge of hazardous waste in your home. You might be surprised at what’s in your house that’s hazardous. I know I was.

Sewage – Just the thought of sewage is icky, so I can’t imagine dealing with it. But, it is a waste product that must be dealt with, as it poses a threat to our water supply. Learn how sewage is treated here and check out possible alternatives.

Global Efforts – All around the world, cities are developing sustainability projects, which means finding alternate ways to use waste products in a way that is productive, rather than harmful. Here you can learn all about it, as well as, what is going on specifically in Denmark.

The Future – This section concludes the site. Here you will find the exhibit’s finishing thoughts, as well as, a point in the right direction for more information.

Related Resources – This section is where you can find links to more information on waste management, the environment and even some books you can read on the subject.

This site certainly gives you something to think about the next time you head to the trash can or decide whether or not to recycle something. I hope you learn as much as I did!
