The first step in environmental waste management is controlling waste generation and collection at the source. The kitchen is one place that generates waste on a daily basis. Now that the world is talking of reducing carbon footprints and going green, kitchen waste containers have become an essential that all of us can use to achieve this purpose.

As much as possible we are encouraged to recycle stuff. As far as kitchen trash is concerned, the way to go is to separate the trash into bio-degradable waste, and other waste items that are not easily bio-degradable but are recyclable. This is where the kitchen waste containers come in. Modern day trash containers have several compartments that allow us to adopt ecologically viable waste disposal techniques.

Talking of bio-degradable waste, what can you do with it? You can use it as organic fertilizer. Organic fertilizer is produced by a process known as composting, where scarp food items, leftover, etc can be collected into kitchen scrap containers and the natural process of rotting and fermentation allowed to degrade them into organic manure.

Use of kitchen food containers for collecting tiny scraps of food will help you gather the raw materials to start the composting process. They come with special designs that prevent the decomposing food stick to the sides of the container. That way, you don’t have to bang the container against the bigger bin to get the slimy stuff out.

While recycling and composting has been on in the Western world, third world countries are lagging behind in this regard. Many people do not realize the potentials of getting into the business of selling kitchen scrap containers for composting. Many farmers in the third world are groaning under the weight of purchasing inorganic fertilizer (N:P:K variety).

You can take advantage of the market opportunity to sell kitchen trash containers that support composting to them. Who knows, 2011 may just be your year if you seize this opportunity.
