Waste disposal problems

Some important things in life you just can not get away from namely-air, water, and food .waste disposal may not be as urgent requirement, but in the long run it is just as important .if waste is not disposed of properly, the day will come when our deaths will be direct consequence of this. We work on buildings schools, look askance at black magic and ban controversial websites yet we sweep within and defile without. Do you not find it aberrant that a country having a nuclear programme has no effective waste management system? It is strange that we have not even begun to solve the problem of solid waste management which has to be one of our priorities. Solid waste, such as household garbage, industrial waste, commercial waste and waste from construction sites requires proper disposal.

The responsibility for providing facilities for proper waste management rests with civil authorities, however it is up to the citizens to use the facilities provided. The World Bank published a report on SWM which pertains only to some cities and area of Punjab one of the conclusions of the report was that at a national lavel, there is no comprehensive solid waste management guideline that addresses all important waste categories. An action plan with a concrete approach and allocation of financial and human resources is yet to be developed.

The report also said that according to a rough estimate, the total household waste from just nine cities of Punjab was 10,000 tons per day, or 3.3 million tons per year. Presently, waste collection services in the nine cities of the Punjab are responsible for collecting between 40 per cent to 70 percent waste disposed. Only part of the waste collected in deposited in official facilities. The rest is simply dumped any where, in the street, in empty plots, drains and water courses. There has to be a final disposal of the rubbish collected. There is no properly designed and sanitary landfill .It is not as though solid waste management is a lost cause in all cities. All it needs it planning and the will to make it work. There is always another option which is to ignore our environment it poses will not die away. We will.

    Currently it sounds like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Many thanks!
