Dis­posal of garbage

The Borneo Post - Good English - - News -

GARBAGE dis­posal has be­come a se­ri­ous prob­lem in ur­ban ar­eas. There are tons of garbage in our homes, mar­kets, of­fices, ho­tels, restau­rants, fac­to­ries ad roads. When we walk along the streets, we have to cover our nose some­times be­cause the en­vi­ron­ment is pol­luted with garbage emit­ting bad smell.

Peo­ple throw their rub­bish on the road sides and and stray dogs come to these places in search of food. They tear the bags and scat­ter the rub­bish all over the roads.

We can do a good thing to keep the en­vi­ron­ment clean by col­lect­ing garbage into sep­a­rate dust­bins as glass, plas­tics, pa­per, or­ganic waste mat­ter and metal. Then, we can re­cy­cle them.

The once beau­ti­ful en­vi­ron­ment has now be­come pol­luted with lor­ries and trucks hav­ing to carry loads of rub­bish away daily.

We can make our own fer­tiliser by col­lect­ing the kitchen refuse. We can also re­cy­cle pa­per. Old news­pa­pers can be treated and the print­ers ink re­moved. It can be mixed with wa­ter un­der pres­sure to make pulp that can be made into new pa­per again. As­sorted plas­tics can be com­pressed and re­cy­cled to be made into var­i­ous new prod­ucts.

Now, it is pos­si­ble to re­cy­cle alu­minium too.

If we dis­pose garbage in the cor­rect way, it will pro­tect us and the en­vi­ron­ment too.
