Littering can be hazardous, like shards of broken glass, or non-hazardous, like a gum wrapper. Littering occurs when people are too lazy to throw trash in the right manner. When you walk down the streets of my hometown you notice by looking at the sidewalks that there is a littering problem. The littering problem not only effects the people living in the town as well as the animals. The evidence is clear that when people are trying to sell their home, they want the community around to look at the town as presentable.
The litter problem in Danville is really concerning me, and I believe if I convince you, you may Just agree with me and stop this dilemma. Littering is an issue in the town of Danville that is going to be affected the future if something is not done to resolve it. Some people may disagree that the reason people litter is because there is nowhere to put trash when walking down the street or they have become too careless to find a trash can. It is clear that some people are ignorant to the harm they are doing to the town by littering and the variety of roblems they are causing.
It is a fact that littering has a huge effect on animals along with people. Most animals can’t tell the difference between food and trash leaving them poisoned from trash they have eaten. Cigarette butts have been found in the stomachs of birds, dogs, cats, and squirrels. Littering can also be hazardous to one’s health by attracting vermin and bacteria. My solution to the littering problem is to put more public trash cans and recycling boxes around each block.
In result to utting more public trash cans and recycling boxes, I think my hometown should have a designated day to clean up the trash around the city. If the idea of recycling and cleaning up the town becomes popular and well known the town will make a change. Both of these solutions will result in minimizing the amount of trash in the environment and will help the township look cleaner. I believe this issue needs to be resolved as soon as possible. The environment of Danville needs to be improved to create a better image for tommarow.
