Here are many ways we can make a difference in Dubuque. if everybody helped out we could make Dubuque a clean place with no trash on the ground. If people stopped throwing cans and empty bottles on the ground and empty packs of gum Dubuque would look alot nicer than it does now with all the trash. Dubuque has the 9th most drunk people in Iowa and that's bad and unsafe for people who like to walk and if people don't drink on the weekdays people will be a lot safer. If people don't drink at all then people will be more safe all week and weekends. I know that dubuque is not safe with all the pollution in the river and streets it makes the river look dirty and you might run over a can’s that might scratch your boat or you might run over a plastic
Take a moment to imagine the realization that a young boy came to when two of his favorite movies had a large plotline that was somewhat based on the problems of trash. Wall-E, the famous Pixar movie, was based on a small robot that was left behind on Earth’s surface alone. His job was to clean the garbage that the human population left behind when they went into space to escape their problems. Toy Story 3, another Pixar movie, contained a scene with garbage that was vital to the plot, in which the characters are rescued from a trash furnace that was consuming literally tons of trash a minute. These two movies tried to make the American population aware of the ever growing trash situation, however, Americans quickly forgot about the Earth shattering situation that they are causing. The solution to the world’s trash problem is easy; people need to be educated on the problems of trash and given an easy way to fix it. People should be required to visit a landfill, educated on the severity of the trash problem, and should be rewarded for changing their habits to improve the problem.
If I was governing a city I would put waste management in my top 10 priorities, so my city wouldn’t have to worry about pollution and trash all over the place. My city would be just perfect. We would have trash day everyday. Everyone would have a job and be very happy. We would have a new system of getting rid of trash. My city would very clean and would be flourishing. Our city would be the cleanest in the world and everyone who visit it will very impressed.
Much of this trash ends up in the ocean harming not only marine life, but us too. However, this is not only happening in America it’s happening all over the world with China at 8.82 million metric tons of mismanaged waste. All this waste if caught in a gyre, can lead to one of the garbage patches. This has been happening since we started using plastic but it the garbage patches were discovered in the early 1990’s. We keep throwing trash away that keeps being misplaced, then it ends up in the oceans with the rest of the trash. I propose multiple solutions, to enforce plastic bag ban and to enforce recycling. California has banned the use of plastic bags, meaning that if you do use them a fine will be put in place. Environment California explained how before the plastic bag ban California used up to 19 billion plastic bags each year with less than five percent being recycled. However, we can change that. By using less plastic bags we harm the ocean less. Another solution is to each week collect each household’s trash, per pound of trash found in the recycling bin provided by the city should be a $11 fine. Tiffany Edmonds, Solid Waste Management Department spokeswoman, explained why they started the fine “ It is an attempt to change behavior. The fine covers the cost of sending a garbage collection truck to the house to pick up the contaminated recycling bin” this will encourage people to recycle. Since the plastic
In order to maintain a healthier community within Booneville, we must tackle the problem of pollution. When trash is seen on the road, many hardly think nor feel nothing about it. People within the community are more concerned with their personal matters and life that they have no time to waste on protecting the community from pollution which means they are also ignorant to the consequences of pollution as they may build up to cause great harm to the community and the Earth.
In the world we live in today where it is the norm to do as one please as long as there is no one there to say other-wise; the people on this earth as a whole pollute every day of their lives. There are people littering and polluting the world as we speak. On a daily basis as I drive around, Sacramento, I see cigarette butts thrown out windows, cups flying out cars, and plastic bags floating around. I am a smoker, yet I do not throw cigarettes out the window for the convenience due to the fact that it is littering and making the world a dirtier place. The one place I see the most trash are along the rivers and beaches. As I accompany my father fishing at the local rivers and ponds all I see is trash everywhere alongside the roads and rivers.
Pollution of the environment is not just a problem in the United States, but also in the rest of the world, but there are ways of fixing this by starting small with the city of Roseville, California. There are many different solutions to this problem, for example, volunteers can help pick up the trash that is currently scattered across certain parks and areas, workers can set up posts, signs, and trash bins across the city for people to throw away their trash in, limiting the use of certain chemicals, setting up police officers to vigilate areas like parks and sidewalks, increase the littering fee, and finally, and most importantly, setting up advertisements and news reports of what littering is doing to our environment. All these things
What improvement would make our community better. Helping people with their homes it would make the community look better. An improvement I would make is more assistance to those in need because they may need home repairs, transportation and help cleaning and cooking.
Garbage in the Great Lakes are harming the Earth and making it unhealthy. Garbage is especially harming the animals and the Garbage is polluting the water. How should we prevent people from littering. Also how can we make the Earth more healthy?
Let’s start with the food pantry. There are plenty of people that go hungry and never ask anyone for help. Having a place to drop off the food and for people to come and pick it up. We would have less people go hungry in our community. They would really appreciate the food.
Well first off i'm all for recycling more but making it a law would be going to far in my option. The three tash can idea is to much if you ask me. Food an normal trash should be in one can and recyclables she be in another. If its a law and someone messes up then they get a ticket for putting the wrong thing in the wrong trash can. Because if you have three cans that will probley end up confusing for some poeple, like older men and women.
The big question is, “What can I do to help?” There are a few ways you and I can help with the pollution issue of the Duck River. The easiest thing we can do is throw away our trash when we go to the Duck River to fish, canoe, swim, or kayak. Sometimes, it is easier for us to be lazy and just leave our trash lying on the bank or throw it in the river. We must remember God gave us this beautiful land and water to respect and take care of all the time.
Where they can live and build themselves a better life than a life on the streets. This would also solve their situation of unemployment and their situation of being homeless because while they would be at the landfills, constructing their homes, they would be recuperating any recyclable materials from the dump yards, which would help make our environment a better place. On top of them unknowingly helping the environment, they would also benefit by gathering those materials for their
Pollution is a major problem globally and it becomes greater as the human population continues to rise exponentially. One of the major problems with increased population is higher waste production, which creates increased air, soil, and water pollution. To resolve this problem waste reduction must be of primary importance in preventing and reducing pollution. Waste management can be an expensive undertaking if not managed correctly so sustainable practices must be addressed. While pollution prevention and reduction programs can be expensive if not managed correctly, waste reduction is essential for the reduction and prevention of pollution.
