This learning module presents a way of minimizing the garbage problem through waste recycling. It suggests presorting of waste according to the 5-fs, namely, factory materials, future use materials, fuel, feeds, and fertilizer, thereby encouraging maximum utilization of materials otherwise thrown away/wasted. The module proceeds with a more detailed discussion of converting waste into organic fertilizer (compost) including the procedure and science ideas involved. Built into the module is the development of positive attitudes towards the merits of recycling.
