Solution :-

Biodegradable wastes are decomposed by the microorganisms into simpler substances which can be used by the producers as a raw material. But following are the effects of too many biodegradable wastes:

- As the decomposition of the biodegradable wastes is slow, they produce awful smell and when inhaled by humans it can be harmful.

- The dumping areas can be a place where harmful organisms may start to breed which can be harmful to humans as well as plants and animals.

- Increase in the number of aquatic organisms may result in depletion of oxygen.
