The dustbin is one of the most useful objects in the world, but it gets used the least because people don’t contribute towards the cleanliness of their country. If we talk about India, the government has placed two dustbins for wet and dry garbage at every corner of a city, but still, people will throw garbage on the roads.
What is a Dustbin?
The dustbin is a container that is used to collect garbage and waste products. Dustbins can be made of Plastic, Metal or sometimes even with Cardboard or thick Paper.
The purpose of the Dustbin is that it helps to keep dirty and decaying Waste separate from the rest of the clean surroundings. There are ways one can use them as shown below.
Dustbin in the Kitchen and Toilet
The Kitchen Dustbin is one of the most frequently used ones at our homes. A lot of Waste is produced from food items while cutting, chopping and cooking are discarded in the Kitchen Dustbin. The Toilet Dustbin is another one that is used a lot. This is because cleaning, bathing and toilet activities produce a lot of rubbish and trash that needs to collect in the Toilet Dustbin. Baby diapers etc. go here.
Dustbin in the Office
Dustbins are also useful in Offices because Office work produces a lot of Paperwork waste and also waste from Office Stationery.
Dustbins on Roads and Public Places
It is important to have enough number of Dustbins along Roads and at Public Places. This is a critical Public Health, Safety and Sanitation Measure. Availability of dustbins provides people with a convenient option to dispose-off their waste and rubbish. In the absence of convenient Dustbins, this waste is then littered on Roads and at Public Places. This becomes a Public Health Nuisance.
How can Dustbins be used?
Here are how dustbins could bring in use:
- Cleanliness of a country is paramount, and that is why the government has to take strict action against the people who do not contribute towards the cleanliness of the country.
- The dustbins placed at every corner should get placed to locations where maximum people gather, but it should be kept at a place where people don’t get to smell the foul smell of the garbage.
- A penalty should be there for the person if someone throws the garbage on the road and not in the dustbin and for that the government should place some CCTV cameras on various crowded areas so that the person could easily get fetched.
A dustbin is an important tool for Public Health, Sanitation, and Safety. The government did its bit by providing the dustbins everywhere. Now it is our responsibility to use those dustbins and contribute to the cleanliness of the country.
