Post C: Organic Waste Management

Organic waste management is very important, everyone have to deal with waste problems. The reed (mention in post A), it took many hand to pick, process, pack, unpack, and put it on display. People need to work in the production, marketing, distribution, and preparation of food. Like many jobs in the burgeoning service economy, food service jobs are poorly paid, unreliable, and offer few opportunities for advancement. In one survey, only 13 percent of employed part-time, lack health insurance, and need welfare benefits. Cruelly, food service employees are still substantially more likely than the general population to be unable to afford enough to eat.

It’s estimated that by the 2075, the world population will increase around 9.5 billion people, there is a global necessity to practice more sustainable food production, consumption and disposal method in order to maintain food security while minimizing harmful effects on the environment, Australia will still waste valuable resources this is the reason why organic waste management is important, While organic waste prevention campaigns have occasionally targeted businesses, governments and institutions, they have overwhelmingly continued a long running pattern integral to the fetishization of waste: namely, displacing blame from producers onto consumers. In New South Wales households surveyed as part of the food waste avoidance benchmark study to compile the information of knowledge about attitudes and behavior around food waste, which is the part of the organic waste, There is a relatively empty box set up for people to place their unwanted but still- good food and furniture in, and one hundred yards away, there was a giant dumpster overflowing with things that should have been in that box. Me and a few frustrated friends began sorting through the dumpster. Where we had expected to find a few dollars’ worth of things that had been discarded, cosmetics, medical supplies, furniture, and everything else people fit into dorms.


Indeed, dumpster diving remained a morally charged activity long after the first trash tour, on that brought new people into the group as well as reaffirming the commitments of those already involved.The collective dumpster dive symbolized something different for individuals who had long since been “radicalized” and were already relying on recovering ex-commodities to survive.
