Our Waste Goes Where?!
Our bodies need nutrients to survive. As we consume, we produce waste. This waste is processed. Occasionally, the processed poop ends up as fertilizer and provides nutrients to our nutrients. We then consume said fertilized nutrients…and set them free again! ‘Tis more than the Cycle of Poop. In truth (a deeper more philosophical existential sense…), it is the cycle of life~ where every living being, plant to animal, has a purpose…and even its demise results in a form of rebirth and a giving of life to another. Poop has a Purpose.
In a much more scientific and detailed manner, I am now going to explain to you, dear readers, the step by step processes for how city people take care of their waste (Centralized Wastewater Collection and Treatment) and how country folk take care of their waste (Decentralized Wastewater Collection and Treatment). I will attempt to keep it concise and organized (and all existential crises excluded)…as cleaning poop can be a messy endeavor.
