Jun 11, 2013 Letters Comments Off on Garbage, Litter – The Destruction of Our Country
I think we would all agree that litter above everything else is the most serious problem in our country. It clutters our drains, piles up on the roadside and simply covers our wonderful country in large, horrible – smelling, multi-coloured mounds that stretch across the Garden City, now referred to by people as the “Garbage City”.
Garbage is terrible here in our country. It feeds the rats and roaches which leads to multiple diseases and sicknesses. With the animals multiplying those diseases it can easily bring on an epidemic.
This is only a small example of what the state of our environment can bring, but even the smallest of gestures can help. Imagine this. If you say that your single plastic bottle or Styrofoam box won’t matter and you throw it onto the roadside, what if 500 more people decide the same? There would be 500 more pieces of garbage added to our environment. So don’t throw anymore garbage into it.
If every one of us took this problem seriously and refrained from dumping their trash ‘any and every where’ the pollution would lessen.
With the sanitation staff cleaning up the present garbage and no more excessive build-up, the garbage on the roadsides and public areas could disappear.
Please strive for your country’s excellence and beauty. This is where we live and grow up. Give yourself a reason to be proud.
Let us work together to make Guyana shine.
