Who would want to walk around in a dirty place? Nobody. We need to keep our community clean. We need to keep the ground trash free. Encourage the local waste companies to start a recycling system for glass, plastic and aluminum. And we should keep the scenery attractive.
The owners of businesses in our community should place at least one trash can outside of their stores. Owners of restaurants should place two or more trash cans inside and outside the building. I suggest that Dumpsters should be covered up, so that trash won’t fly out with strong winds and bad smells will not be released.
Another way to keep our community healthy is by recycling. This means separating glass, aluminum, plastic, etc. at home and businesses. Recycling often saves energy and reduces domestic waste as well as pollution. A good way to apply recycling is to have different color containers for different items.
Overall, to keep our community attractive, local businesses and residents could work together to start programs that encourage visitors and tourists to keep our community clean. Besides maintaining the clean streets in our community, it also helps to have houses, and buildings repaired and painted, trees trimmed and lawns mowed.
To conclude this topic, I hope that everyone who is reading this article gets the idea, to work hard to keep our community clean, healthy and attractive.
