Improper waste disposal creates a hazardous problem to everyone. It is the most common problem in any country in the world. It may infect people not only physically but through the air and water.

 WHAT IS A WASTE DISPOSAL?              

Waste disposal is the removing and destroying or storing damaged, used or other unwanted domestic, agricultural or industrial products and substances. Disposal includes burning, burial at landfill sites or at sea, and recycling.This when a person throw some garbage in a proper or improper way. It is also called waste management.

The garbage that thrown in the rivers and canals may not only block our waterways but it invites rats, cockroaches, and any other dirty rodents to infect the water and soon be transferred to humans. Clogged waterways have a tendency to spill causing flash floods, which is what is happening here in our country (PHILIPPINES). Likewise, the lack of enough dumpsites and landfills is also a hindrance in helping to solve our garbage management crisis.

8 years ago, tropical storm Ondoy (international name: Ketsana) brought massive rainfall and caused severe flooding in Luzon, particularly in Metro Manila and neighboring provinces.The typhoon lasted for a few days, but the recovery from it was long, tough and, to those directly affected, painful. After the storm there were trashes scattered all over the place where it was hard and needed much time before it was removed.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO PREVENT THIS?

These environmental problems can attract disaster anytime.  We can do as citizens is to do what we can to solve these problems. Simple acts like cleaning, recycling and planting trees are always a good start. Also, strict implementation of Republic Act 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 and any other laws regarding to waste management should be made. There is also a need to educate discipline to people. Let us help rebuild our nation and our world. Let us save our Mother Earth, Let us use a proper waste disposal before it is too late.
