WASTE IN MY TERMS
The literal term for waste would be 'garbage' which is disposal of any kind of kitchen waste, unwanted clothes and utensils, paper waste etc. We all are hardly bothered about the waste in our homes because there is tendency to dump our wastes to someplace where no one finds. This notion that we have within our minds is totally wrong. This is truly not the correct way of you be a responsible citizen of your country.There are many good people who do dispose their wastes in the right manner but we are still lacking behind in our waste management controls because of few careless people. The most important duty of you be a citizen is it to be a model for others so that you teach others and hence the entire community outshines, which not only benefits people but also the country. Just walk down the streets and you will be flabbergasted by the way the people throw away their waste, its pathetic!! the terrible nasty smell does really get into your nerves. We are just passerby but just imagine the trouble you are causing to the neighborhood. Due to the irresponsible behavior of others, people living nearby have to suffer. The chunks of waste becomes the hub for Plasmodium vivax and other species, obviously we don't want malaria to become epidemic and take our lives away. The health problems related to lack of proper hygiene and care are many. Due to ingested food/ items or the smell there are many respiratory,genital and gastrointestinal problems that occur. The burning of plastics to some extent has a caused a lot of environmental problems and health problems especially in respiration ( due to the complete lack of fresh air and only intoxicated air ). As the popular saying goes 'Prevention is always better than cure' is the right proverb to be used in this condition. Before there is a rise in the level of diseases it would be right to take the steps immediately before hand. By proper disposal of waste we can see a better tomorrow. All we need is the knowledge about how to dispose the wastes and how to make everyone do it. One way would be campaigning which is a social way of approaching everyone and informing them about the government rules. Though government should take strict in charge on those carefree people and charge them. Also, there should be ventilated and hygienic disposal machines, incinerators for disposing waste. In foreign countries, everyday a big truck comes in to pick up the waste from individual homes and disposes it the right manner, the paper waste are crushed with the help of a cutter which is installed in the trucks. Also, I think we ourselves have the start separating the recyclable, non-recyclable, plastics, food waste differently by throwing them in different containers This makes it easy for those workers who take the wastes and dig into all that to see whether you have disposed it properly. This is an excellent method to be imbibed by all the citizen of a country it is not only beneficial to individuals but also to the entire community. Lets take an oath and respect our Mother Earth because she should not be littered all around and it is our role to dispose wastes properly and separately. Inform others and give awareness to all so that this system is very well followed. Technology has to be in par with the waste management systems so that we can use our investments in resources judiciously. If we do this now then we can rejoice the better tomorrow!!! The refreshing air can be breathed, the environment is hygiene, we can live in a healthy lifestyle. I would like to conclude by saying that let us all be the change for a happier tomorrow. Let us all be ecofriendly citizens of our country!!!!
