Class 6 Biology Garbage in Garbage Out Introduction


The term Garbage means “Waste Product”. This means the product, which is no longer of any use. We all collect garbage in our house in dustbins. In dustbin we keep all type of garbage together like tea leaves, diapers, dry leaves, milk polythene, food waste etc. In this collection of garbage, there is some part of waste which can be reused.
