This place is in Fgura.In this picture we can see the rubbish not thrown in its appropriate place.This is a private property without anybody bothering to look after it.If we take a good look at this picture we can see a yellow torn poster write on it “Do not throw rubbish here” and who will throw rubbish here will be heavily penalised.But how much do people bother to notice it?In that locality people throw away their rubbish during the night not to be seen by anybody so that infront of their door will remain clean.This rubbish remains there up to the following morning.Later at night the rats and cats come out and make a feast with all that rubbish and leave a mess behind the doors.Anybody who notices someone throwing rubbish outside is duty bound to make a report to the people concerned.

New Outside dump!

In this picture we can see rubbish dumped in a private property in Fgura, exactly behind the yard of a house.The owner of this property objected about very unpleasant smells and occasionally he found rats and all types of insects.Having no pride for the environment, some people have access to this property and discard all their rubbish there.Unfortunately the owner is not talking any action about the rubbish because the situation remained the same.We must be environmental conscious that if we don’ t see any posters with regards to the environment, we should take it for granted that the rubbish should be thrown in the right recycling bags and placed in the right place and not thrown anywhere we like and leave all types of animals and insects make a feast with this rubbish.Private properties are not a dumping site!Education is the best!

This image explains how some citizens in Zejtun were careless and ignored the sign in front of them saying in the Maltese language ‘Jekk joghgbok tarmix hawn’ that means please do not throw rubbish here. They were not looking after the environment and were careless enough to fill a street infront of a Play Park with their rubbish and dirt.

The student has caught a fish looking curiously from the rock in the aquarium. It seems to be saying that she would enjoy being in the open sea rather than in a small aquarium.

The water lilies in the pond and the fish are an example of a nice environment. Rubbish should not be thrown in the sea. It is estimated that every year over a million seabirds, turtles and sea animals die of litter related causes.

The birds in the dark cage prefer to be all in the wild. They are wondering what it would be like if they are free to move freely. Bird’s place is in the open. No bird is born to live in a cage. But still millions of birds are kept caged and often improperly cared for.

Cigarettes butts (discarded filters) are the most common litter worldwide. These are mostly littered on the ground. The problem is that it takes 10 to 15 years for the filter fibres to break down by the ultraviolet rays from the sun and during this time their toxic materials like chemicals and heavy metals are released. They are difficult to clean up and also such process is costly. Cigarettes butts are poisonous to living organisms when ingested like fish and children. Another problem is that if the cigarette is still lit and tossed in a bush, the bush will probably catch fire. There are many precautions that can prevent these problems like portable ashtrays or ashtray stands near a bus stop or public places. Harsher fines can be given to people who litter cigarette waste outside
