To counter this, government can play major role by monitoring the objects manufactured by the companies. In other words, they can enforce these organisations to produce durable items which can be used for the longer duration. As a consequence, disposing of products will be minimised and hence, amount of waste produced will also be reduced to greater extent. Along with this, legal entities should concentrate on educating society about the negative effects of excessive population and work together for controlling this growth.
Why im saying that?Because when the government implemented a plan to reduce garbage, the plan can be executed very well because there are many who would support and help.Also the government have many advantage to manage the rubbish because they control all the facilities who manage the rubbish.I give the example when some of the NGO(Non-Government Organization) doing some event about how to manage and clean up the rubbish in country,mybe that event does not received good response compared to government.TQ ^^,
In order to reduce the amount of rubbish, the cooperation between the government and the citizen is very important. This is because if only one side is taking the responsibility while the other party did not do anything then this problem will not be solved. So both party have to participate to take care of the cleanliness in our country.
Because every person must be responsible on their attitude. If they can be a contributor to the problems, why cant they be a contributor to solve the problems. Government authority indeed have to find ways to reduce the amount of rubbish by creating laws on the offences, but other society such as individual, families, and schools have to join to curb this problem. This is because they cannot put the burden only on the government. For individual, he or she can reduce the amount of rubbish by not using food packaging. If he want to take lunch , he just eat at the restaurant and go away after finish the lunch without bring food pakaging with them. If this practice used by every individual, i am sure that the rubbish will reduce. Secondly, the families. Parents must be very strict to their children. They have to teach their children not to throw rubbish everywhere but into the recycle dustbins. By throwing into the recycle dustbins, the rubbish will be recycle, and it can be use again.Consequently, the quantity of rubbish will decrease. I assert that if every parents play their important role, the earth would not be full of waste products. School is a place to learn not only academic but attitude. Every school must prefer a good circumstances as students go to school to learn. Who want to go to school that do not have a proper management in term of cleanliness? So, school must have a regulations for the students to reduce waste products. The regulations can be punishment for instance, fining students about RM 5 when they do not throw rubbish into dustbins . Fining them for a good reason is not a problem but the school must have a consistency to make it work so that the punishment will go on smoothly and fairly on students. To conclude my opinion on this topic, I assert that not only government responsible on this matter but the society must put hands together to reduce the amount of rubbish.
Taking care of cleanliness of anywhere is never just the responsibility of its governing bodies but should also be a major concern for its residents. The idol of a clean nation can only be achieved by each and everyone's cooperation and effort. Govt. Alone could not do anything at all. Hence, I completely disagree with the statement that government should take care of the nation's cleanliness by itself.
Production or consumption of goods and services often results in costs or benefits to people other than the buyers and sellers. For example, if an industry disposes of wastes in a stream, it imposes costs to people who want to use the stream for other purposes, such as drinking water. People who live in that municipality will have to pay to clean up the water if they want to drink it. The cost of cleaning the stream is a hidden cost of the production of goods by the industry. This hidden cost, which will be assumed by taxpayers, is referred to in economic terms as a negative externality1.
Free market transactions are usually unregulated in the sense that there is no mechanism for charging polluters a fee to correct for the damage done by their emissions. Once society has decided on an acceptable level of environmental quality, it is necessary to adopt measures that will change the behavior of producers and consumers. This could be achieved through government intervention, by setting command and control regulations and market-based incentives.
For example, air pollution episodes in major cities across the United States, led to the United States government to the establishment of strong emission standards for industry and automobiles. The Clean Air Act of 1970, empowered the federal government to set emission standards that each state was required to enforce. The Clean Air Act was revised in 1977 and in 1990 to include incentives to encourage companies to lower emissions of chemicals responsible for the production of acid rain. The Act today identifies 189 pollutants for regulation.
Similarly, by early 1970s water pollution had reached crisis proportions in the United States. Congress responded in 1972 by passing the Clean Water Act, whose main objective was "to restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the Nation’s waters." "In order to achieve this objective it is hereby declared that, consistent with the provisions of this Act —
(1) it is the national goal that the discharge of pollutants into the navigable waters be eliminated by 1985;
(2) it is the national goal that wherever attainable, an interim goal of water quality which provides for the protection and propagation of fish, shellfish, and wildlife, and provides for recreation in and on the water be achieved by July 1, 1983;
(3) it is the national policy that the discharge of toxic pollutants in toxic amounts be prohibited." 2
It should be noted that in the case of air and water pollution, the damage is done because they are open access resources, i.E., no-one owns them, and there is no individual incentive to restrict pollution. This is why the phenomenon of global climate change has come about, which has motivated governments to act.
The government is the administration of each country responsible of managing the country affairs for the benefits of the people, By the people and for the people. So the amount of rubbish produced is the only responsibility of the people, its them by wasting less for example don't buy more than we need, organize the rubbish by material to make it easy for the recycling.. Will help the government to recycle the rubbish.
So its clear that only the people can do it, and after all it's for them to live in a better environment .
With that Government should be the only authority responsible to reduce the amount of rubbish produced. Because it is integrative process everyone should participate . The beginning of the parents and children in the family surrounding . And then comes the role of schools and universities in education , and role of media in rising awareness among people . Finally comes the responsibility of governments .
Everyone make rubbish everyday, every time, and everywhere. So, why only the government take actions when a pollution problems come because of our daily life and activities? If we only depend on government to overcome this problem, they will never accomplish it because its impossible they can do it alone without being support from the other party especially from the peoples entire the globe. So, not only the government should be the only authority reponsible to settle this issue. They need support from us, they need support from Non Government Organization also to lessen the amount of trashes produced today.
It not just government to responsible on it. We also have our responsible in away to reduce the amount of rubbish. We produced many rubbish during our daily activity. For instance, housewife just stay at home but she will do some housechores that will produced rubbish like cooking or tidy the house. To reduce the amount of rubbish she can use 3R concept that means reduce, reuse and recycle. If she tidy the house and find the thing that not longer use it she can throw it in the recycle dustbin. So, government can collect the rubbish and produced the rubbish to make new product or same product from that source. In conclusion,government not the only authority responsible to reduce the amount of rubbish produced but it is also our responsible.
We should be responsible for the places we stayed. Where we need to reduce the uses of plastics in our daily life because more of rubbish come from garbage plastic that cannot be recycled. We cannot expect the government to solve this issues because the problem comes from our own sources. Although many campaigns that have been conducted by the government but still does not affected. This is because everything starts from ourself.
Individuals are the main body who produce garbage,so individuals must assume main responsibility rather than government . For example plastic bags which belong to living garbage are serious white pollution, if people pay attention to environmental protection,they bring their own shopping bags instead of the plastic bags,which would greatly reduce the use of plastic bags and the amount of rubbish produced.
In addition,the government can make policies to reduce the amount of rubbish produced,but the implementation of the policies are still individuals. Only individuals would like to take the responsibility that can reduce waste generation.
Govermnent should not be the only authority respnsible to reduce the amount of rubbish produced...This is because,as the society, they also should cooperate with government to reduce the rubbish and have more awareness because they are mostly the contibutors on amount of rubbish...For instance, they can use the recycled materials so that it can be recycle and it can be used again..Besides, society also do not have to only depends on government to pick up the rubbish in reducing the amount of rubbish...
