Kerala and waste management issuesPeople of Kerala are always conscious about cleanliness and health. Generally they take a bath at least once in a day. Their homes are kept neat and tidy. In spite of all these they are not bothered about the cleanliness of their surroundings. They are not ashamed of throwing their waste outside on the road side. Even well educated and well placed persons show the tendency of throwing the waste collected in a bag on the road side, while traveling in their vehicle.
Even if authorities have schemes to collect waste from the houses certain people do not cooperate. Neither do they take any step to manage their waste themselves.
People must take more cooperative attitude towards this waste issue, then only we can claim we are in a civilized society.
