Trash and garbage are often used interchangeably to refer to waste materials, but there is a subtle difference between the two terms.
Trash generally refers to solid waste materials that are not considered to be organic or biodegradable, such as paper, plastic, metal, and glass. These materials can typically be recycled or reused in some way.
Garbage, on the other hand, refers to organic waste materials that come from food and other natural sources, such as fruit and vegetable scraps, meat and bones, and other kitchen waste. Garbage is typically biodegradable and can be composted, but cannot be recycled in the same way as trash.
In some regions, trash and garbage may be used interchangeably, but generally, trash refers to non-biodegradable waste, while garbage refers to biodegradable waste.
