What is a water pump doing in the countryside, dumped carelessly outside a field? This pump could have been easily disposed of at the civic amenity site instead of actually dumped in the open air. Just imagine the metal pump growing roots stretching beneath and on top of the soil. This pump is just a representative of all the other dumped rubbish found in the countryside. One must consider the fact that it takes an extremely long time for this metal to deteriorate one day. People must not be careless and preserve the environment by making abiding by the 3Rs all the way.
