Damage Caused By Improper Waste Disposal

By December 18, 2017Waste Management

You probably underestimate the negative impact that dumping your trash indiscriminately has on the environment. Imagine if we all haphazardly threw away our garbage without the slightest thought a to how or where!

What Would Happen

The ecosystem and all its parts would slowly but eventually die, and we would have ended up destroying life (as we know it) completely.

Melancholy Water

Whenever garbage ends up in bodies of water, it actually changes the chemical composition of the water. Polluted lakes, polluted streams, polluted oceans and polluted seas affect all life forms that inhabit the waters. Can you evenbegin to comprehend what drinking that kind of water dies to animals?

Pollution

Improper disposal of waste pollutes the land and the air. Eventually, the respiratory systems of the humans that breathe in that air, aswell as other parts of their bodies like their brains, will be severely damaged. Harmful contaminants leave a debilitating mark on everything. Garbage that hadn’t been disposed of properly eventually begins to release methane gas.

Leachate

Leachate is the liquid that comes from the water which flows through contaminated places. The putrid mix of chemicals in that liquid eventually seeps into the soil and into groundwater and into surface water as well.

Economic Impact

It isn’t just humans and animals that are affected. Improper disposal of garbage also affects our communities and their economies. Who would want to risk getting sick or having a sick family by living in an city with poor sanitation? Residents, tourists and investors find smelly places repelling, and all opportunities for growth and development will be lost when they turn away from such cities.

Cities should invest in recycling facilities and programs, otherwise they will be missing out on a lot of revenue generation opportunities, not to mention the positive impact onthe entire community from an increase in job opportunities.

We Are Not The Only Life To Be Affected

Animals also are grossly affected by our indiscriminate tossing of garbage wherever and however we like. Does anyone treat their water for them? No, they have to drink the same water which we have contaminated by inconsiderately dumping our refuse there. They have to drink the same water in which all that rubbish has been floating. The balance in the ecosystem is very delicate, and pollution destroys that delicate balance. Pollution kills corals, thereby reducing fish populations. The filthy garbage that we dump in the waters eventually end up on our tables again because the fish and shellfish in the waters eat our rubbish and we eat the fish. All the rubbish we throw into the oceans (the Styrofoam, the cigarette butts, the plastic, the old fishing lures and lines) eventually leads to the death of millions of marine life every year.
