Municipal solid waste generation in keralaSolid waste generation is the burning issue in our contemporary society. We all know that monsoon season is started; at the same time diseases related to this monsoon also arrived. The main reason for these diseases are municipal solid waste generation especially in Kerala. Kerala is popularly known as god's own country. But now Kerala is not a god's own country and becomes as a waste's own country. The main reason for this much increase in waste is rapid urbanization. Urbanization has advantages as well as disadvantage as the coin has two sides. We cannot avoid urbanization since we need to develop, what we can do is reducing the bad things with urbanization.
Therefore, there is an necessary improved planning and implementation of proper solid waste management. There are mainly three types of wastes which are solid waste, liquid waste and gaseous waste. In Kerala we face the problem mainly from solid wastes. We know that, due to the rapid urbanization we have no area to dispose our own household solid wastes. Most of them are dumb these wastes are in sides of roads. This is not a good thing; we all have to change our own attitude to this. There are several methods to dispose our household wastes. For the better future of society we have do something like that.
During rainy season these solid wastes are will flowing with rain water and these are will deposited in some ponds, wells, rivers, lakes, and in sea. This cause water pollution will take place. This will leads to the end of aquatic ecosystem. This will affect on biological food chain in water. When we drink water from these sources, which will causes some harmful diseases. And when we eat fishes from these water sources that will also causes such diseases.
We have to help our future generation, so we have to change our attitude. We need back our beautiful Kerala. We need back our healthy Kerala. So let us start our activities for Kerala. We have to introduce a new principle to our life, which is 3R.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
