Waste disposal and waste-watch through community participation

I have a novel idea to mitigate this problem. We all know that careless and irresponsible waste disposal practices are now a punishable offence. Since it is an offence, we tend to commit it. We deem dumping our waste criminally and carelessly on someone else’s premises or ‘elsewhere’ as heroics. This is a common misbehaviour associated with any community. We cannot stop it unless people take the initiative and stop it themselves. How can we make people stop it? The only way out is “waste-watching”. This has nothing to do with watching whether someone is disposing of waste in the right manner. Waste-watch is a new concept I propose to shame the people concerned. Since we are so obsessed with our integrity and dignity, it is a good idea to exploit this weakness of the people. Waste disposal and waste-watch through community participation – Merinews.com
