Old newspapers, old clothes etc, can be kept separately and once accumulated we can dispose of it. We have stopped purchasing newspapers and there is no old papers accumulation. Old clothes will be taken away by our servant maid. She may be using or giving them to somebody else. We never ask her for those details. We keep these old items in a separate place and my wife will be clearing all these items at least once a month without fail. Some may not regularly dispose and there will be a lot of accumulation which is not advisable and the cleanliness of the house may get affected.
Dry wastes form the newspaper and other magazines kept outside the residence and these materials after their collection goes to the vendors for its final retrieval. We do have sets of old clothes but we keep them especially for the maid taking the same for their kids. She is obliged with us for such donations.
Earlier we were not generating much waste but now due to the disposable items and use and throw mentality and low quality of items we are getting, more and more waste is being generated in our households. So we have to dispose it more frequently than we were doing in earlier times. Actually many of old items can be recycled nicely and new products can be produced but unfortunately our recycling capacity is very less in comparison to the waste we produce.
Knowledge is power.
