What is garbage?
In the photo you can clearly see milk jugs, tetra paks and various other recyclable materials in the garbage truck's cavity. I was outraged at the sight of this since I know that my building provides a convenient recycling area with bins dedicated to collecting various types of paper, containers and cardboard. I assume many of the other buildings in the area do the same as most are managed by the same company as mine.
It infuriates me that even today, when there is no more disputing the science, people still refuse to act responsibly. This planet we live on is not our garbage dump. Resources are not infinite. It costs more, economically and environmentally, to start from scratch the making of many different products (paper, plastic, metal), and yet too many refuse to contribute their 'trash' to the conservation effort.
One person can make a difference. Together we can save the forests. Please act responsibly.
