This insensitive man throwing garbage on the bridge was caught on camera. The video was shared on social media and drew flak from netizens!
Everyone knows about the aftermath of improper waste disposal. In fact, we all experienced the effects of this right? But let’s explain it again!
Improper waste disposal is one of the biggest environmental issues here in the Philippines and for some other countries also. It caused bigger problems that affect not only the environment but also the health and life of the people. This offense could cause serious effect on water contamination, flash floods, air pollution, and congested water drainage to say a few.
Though the government spent billions to clean rivers and water drainages from waste to prevent flooding. However, people without discipline are always the culprit for throwing garbage.
On the Facebook page “Philippine trends and news”, video footage was shared that shows an insensitive man throwing garbage bags on the bridge.
The video was captioned:
“PASIKATIN | Billions ang mga pinopondohan ng gobyerno para malinisan ang ilog. Kasi binabara ng basura ang mga drainage kaya nagkakaroon ng flooding. Napupuno pa ang Manila Bay ng basura. Pero bakit ganito?”
The man is seen in the video throwing garbage bags from his ‘trike’ down on the bridge.
According to the article published by SCRIBD, the Republic Act (RA) 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 is solid waste management discipline associated with the control of generation, storage, collection, transfer and transport, processing, and disposal of solid wastes. The manner by which these activities are conducted shall be in accord with the best principles of public health, economics, engineering, conservation, aesthetics, other environmental considerations, and public attitudes.
Moreover, the Act provides for a comprehensive ecological solid waste management program by creating the necessary institutional mechanisms (The establishment of a National Solid Waste Management Commission and Solid Waste Management Board in each local government unit as mandated by RA 9003) and incentives (tax exemptions), appropriating funds, declaring certain acts prohibited (littering, throwing, dumping of waste matters in public places and others), and providing penalties.
