Like being said, every genius activity starts with one’s own step, be it in our household, companies, hotels etc, likewise, we can also quote that the management of waste done at one’s personal level can also create everlasting results.
These days, there has been a significant boost in the schemes being implemented by our government and also taking into the consideration creative inventions of the intelligent mind,
With all these initiatives, there comes a scope of reduction of waste to some extent.
But the question arises, till when?
Sooner or later, such elimination will be compensated with creation of another set of waste which will compensated with another one and on and on, and soon a time will come, when there would be absolutely no control on waste by anybody be it our government or private sector,
nd of-course till when would they be able to control the waste for us!!!
As you all witnessed, in our country, there has been an important initiative taken by government to open proper dumping yard for storing our daily waste for example Okhla landfill site or Ghazipur landfill site, but they are also on the verge of being fallen due to an increase in the dumping of waste.
So, like I said, every initiative if taken at individual level will lead to extraordinary result,
Following are some points which I prefer would help in making those big changes-
- First of all, I would like to tell you about the availability of recycled bins in markets which our quite cheaper than the original once and I did not find any difference between the original and the recycled one in terms of style, colour etc.
I know that some of you know about it, so why not purchased till now?
- But, let me come to my main point,
Since there has been a lot going on about segregating and all, so, why not we start this process at our homes and makes the work of municipality even easier. So, in relation to the first point, since these bins are cheaper in cost, and some recycled bins can be purchased at a cost of an original bin so why not purchase two instead of one.
And after that I know what you all have to do!!!!!!!
One bin for biodegradable and one for non-biodegradable.
- Second, in our locality/society, we all have a people’s community (resident welfare association) to handle all the important activities of our society be it related to complaints, cleanliness, developments etc.
And there is no denying the fact that we all have gardens or grounds in our locality/society.
So, why not discuss about self-composting with the larger bodies or if we don’t have time, then why not hiring a gardener to look after it with creation and maintenance of pit in some isolated area in the park to decompose all our biodegradable waste.
- Third and the last point which I wanted to mention is about the waste management in our vehicles.
I know it sounds odd but what I mean to say is why we can’t install a bag in our vehicles to collect the waste and throw them later at some dumping site rather than adopting the policy of eating and throwing at the same time in our vehicles.
I know that with each initiative there comes disadvantages like money, time etc etc….
But at some point, of time, we have to do it, so why not adopt it now?
In the end, I conclude with,
“ No matter how much the government or other party help us in managing our waste, a time will come when we will be left all alone with this bunch of garbage piling up day by day and one would not be able to do anything about it, but why fear if it is possible to handle it now, so time has come, start as soon as possible, our environment is in danger”
