Skip bins are an important part of a good community. Any community that has civilised people with civic consciousness has them in abundance. They are a cheap, yet invaluable tool for keeping cities and places clean. Research dictates that cities with skip bins installed at public places experience less solid Easter pollution. This is especially important for countries that experience large amounts of solid waste matter. Such countries need to legislate on cleanliness before it’s too late. After it reaches a certain level, environmental degradation becomes irreversible. Many countries have recognised the importance of conserving the environment and an important step towards doing that is keeping urban spaces clean and free of waste.
Slips bins are an extremely useful tool. They can be weaponised in the fight against pollution. Buying and placing skip bins on strategically important locations is the first step towards clean cities. This should be legislated for by the governments. The federal government can handle this but it’s more appropriate to let the local bodies such as councils to regulate the matter. Littering should be treated as a civil minor offence and fines and penalties should be installed in order to curb the habit. More severe steps can be referred for repeat offenders.
Skip bins can either be owned by the government or subsidiary bodies. This enables a greater coverage and is a very good use of tax revenue. Some more polluted countries have dealt with pollution so severely that they have taken out loans to buy skip bins to be installed in public places. People should be educated about the importance of cleanliness and the perils of an unclean environment. Pollution affects the land we live on, the air we breathe and the water we drink. We need to be more mindful about the planet we are leaving for the next generations. We owe them a safe future and skip bins, along with other such measures are the way forward. Civic consciousness can be aroused by educating people on a mass scale.
It is advisable for the government to provide subsidies to people to buy skip bins and other equipment to collect and dispose of waste. These subsidies should be especially provided to poorer communities. Likewise, communities and places that are more affected by pollution should be prioritized when it comes to taking measures to reduce pollution. Not all people and places are equally affected.
The next step should be proper waste disposal. Waste disposal depends upon the type of Easter involved. Waster can be solid, liquid or gaseous. It can be toxic or benign. It can be organic or inorganic. There should be different policies for dealing with different kinds of wastes. Not all kinds of waste materials can be disposed in a landfill without second thoughts
