The last chapter for class 6 Science, will teach you about the concept of ‘Garbage’ and how the waste that is generated on a daily basis, is dealt with. At Teachoo, you will find all the concepts, NCERT questions as well as extra questions prepared by experts.

To start, you will note down all the waste products lying around you which are of no use and think what should be done with them. We generally tend to throw away these products which we feel will not be used by us anymore but what happens to these products that we discard.

The most common methods in which these waste products are dealt with are -

  • Landfills
  • Vermicomposting
  • Composting

Some people also burn these waste products but this method generates gases which are harmful for our environment and cause pollution.

There are certain products which might not be useful for one but are useful for someone else. These products (for example : Paper) can be recycled and used again.

Recycling reduces wastage and is very beneficial for the environment.
