When you think of cleaning up the environment, you probably consider this process on a large scale. We are used to seeing news organisations depict massive landfills and recycling centres capable of reducing the impact. However, most people are unaware that they can do so much more by concentrating on simple residential issues. It is shocking to learn about how unsafe many residential streets are. They contain countless pollutants, some of which are simply tossed from moving car windows. Ensure pollutants and cleaning chemicals are kept to a minimum for peace of mind. The only way to stop this issue is to make sure that you help people to see how their actions hurt the community. Here are some ways that you can make changes to help residential areas.
Have you ever seen a neighbour dump yard waste down a sewer? If so, stop him immediately the next time you see him do it. Grass clippings contain countless chemicals. Fertilisers used to feed lawns are harmful to animals and to people. What ends up happening is grass clippings that go down storm drains make their way into water supplies. The same issues occur with the disposal of gasoline or battery acid. You must dispose of it in properly marked containers to prevent issues. One of the most common forms of residential waste is dog waste. It spreads diseases, yet people fail to pick it up. Glass and other broken materials cause hazards for both pets and people. Do your part by scheduling a neighbourhood clean up day, and encourage everyone to participate.
