We all have heard the term dustbin (which is actually the same thing as a trash can of course!) but why call it a dustbin, we are not putting only dust in it anyways. Good thing is no matter what we call it, this useful invention of plastic is tremendously beneficial.
There are certain regions and countries where dustbins are identified from different colors and the identification is to differentiate between compostable material waste and the normal waste. Broadly it can be identified in two colors such as: blue and green (these two colors are commonly seen in other countries) a green bin is compact kind and is designated for bio degradable waste as a norm to avoid it from landfills, in some places and regions green bins are also used to provide a place to dumb unsorted municipal waste. Basically colors were assigned to identify among recycle bin and normal garbage bin, because in so many countries like China, Japan they rely very much on recycling process and for that they need designated places.
Polythene is also considered as a disposable garbage bag because in real one cannot destroy polythene complete (it remains existent somehow). Polythene should be taken as a part of a dustbin (they place a big polythene inside the bin and then use that bin for wastage) as it facilitates people as in they just grab the filled polythene and not the whole dustbin (and place a fresh polythene for next usage). But especially in Asian countries polythene is used as a waste bag (solely without dustbin) as it occupies less space and flexibility factor allows them to place it anywhere conveniently.
Furthermore, there are certain countries which do not care about pollution and black fumes as the literally burn the garbage in the junkyard instead of properly treating it (recycling or completely disposition). Moreover, it’s very unfortunate that it has been witnessed some regions burn the garbage inside the skip bins Epping, folks! Believe it or not burning the garbage is useless rather it creates an unseen filth i.e. harmful gaseous elements as a result of burning fumes.
Dustbins or no dustbins we are all liable to take care of hygiene and cleanliness, there is no excuse of littering, it should be initiated by all of us. Imagine those days when there were no facilities available like no dustbins, no janitorial staff designated for the specific task, no skip bin services or anything; how they used to take care of the environment, Today when we have sufficient facilities resources; not giving our 100% for this motive is something unjust to the society and wellbeing of the society.
SO fellows never take littering for granted, take this as an agenda, teach your siblings, children and friends not to litter around use dustbins, skip bins and trash can for the purpose.
