The community helping in recycling wastes

Do you know how many residents and business establishments are located in one community? You can find here houses, small restaurants, schools, churches, parks, offices and various shops. A big community with all sorts of building types is usually populated.

If you are staying in such big communities, how can you describe the environment? Can you see trash cans around? Is it bulging with garbage? If not, then this community knows how to manage their waste. But, if you can find these trash cans always full and not even enough for everybody, then waste disposal in this community is uncontrollable.

How would you feel living in such communities? Don’t you know that waste disposal can be a community problem, if you are not going to learn how to recycle your waste? It could have been better if every resident and establishment in the community will cooperate in waste reduction programs. Community leaders must do something to encourage everybody on recycling their waste. In such way, the rate of waste generation in your community will drop down.

What leaders may do

Recycling
As community leaders, who are concerned about waste management and reduction of waste in the community, you have to make a contest. Let’s say that you are going to ask for a diorama of the community. One way of encouraging everybody to join is to give a consolation for the chosen work.

Give rules to every participant, who is coming from various establishments and residents. Tell them that the only material that they are going to use recycled wastes. Give them time to collect and gather the materials that they need.

Aside from that, you may also ask them to make a scrapbook about their group during the working process. This will also be a part of the exhibit. Let them know that all work done will be presented to the whole community. It will not only be the judges, who can see their work, but everybody.

Awareness
During the event or awarding day, the community leaders will not just present the prize to the winners. A part of the celebration is to invite a speaker, who will discuss the importance of waste management. Topics to be discussed also includes waste disposal, composting, reusing and recycling waste. The community leaders must take this opportunity to widen everybody’s knowledge about managing their waste. Residents and establishments might know about waste management, but what if their knowledge is not enough? So, it would be best for community leaders to impart what they can share to reduce waste disposal problems.

Waste Management Programs in the Community

If you are living in a clean and waste-free community, then you would surely love to stay there for the rest of your life. But, if your community has irresponsible and undisciplined citizens, then staying there is a big question. Especially, if the people in your community, do not even know how to dispose their waste properly, then that is a big disappointment.
Nobody will ever dreamed of staying in such community because of so many reasons. First, if the environment is dirty, then insects and rats will be wandering on those messes. Second, with such waste scattered everywhere, then every individual in the community is risking their health to possible illness that may be acquired. This only shows that such community is not safe for everybody. So, would you still choose to live there?
In every community, cleanliness must be maintained. That is possible if every citizen staying in this community will help each other. When it comes to waste management, it can’t be done by a single person. It needs everyone’s cooperation and willingness to have a clean community. So, as an individual, what can you do to maintain cleanliness of the surroundings?
We have community leaders, right? The best thing that they can do is to impose rules and regulations about waste disposal. And then, a strict implementation of these rules and regulations must be done. Let us take this as a responsibility and not a rule. We can also treat this as a community program, where every individual is encouraged to join and participate.

Community waste managemet program

What are in the program?

Garbage Collection
There must be a schedule set when the garbage collector will come and pick the wastes. And then, the waste must not be seen outside the house if there is no schedule. Whoever is caught with wastes outside their house or dumping waste wherever in the community must be fined with a certain amount. In such way the streets will look clean and won’t have bad smell every day.

No Littering Signs
There must be No Littering Signs within the community. If you are eating in the park, then you have to bring your own garbage bag and bring your waste with you. Whoever is caught for leaving wastes or loitering around must be fined with a certain amount.

Collecting fines must not be an issue. This is just a way to remind the people that they need to behave and disciple themselves. If they will follow the rules, then no fines will be collected from them.
