Pick up point?

This unsightly heap of litter was left to be picked up at the corner of a main road in Naxxar close to my house.
Much of the items that have been disposed of, such as cardboard boxes and plastic water bottles could have easily been placed in bags for recycling and placed outside to be collected on appropriate days. Other items such as the computer monitor and carpet underlay seen in the photograph should have been taken to one of the bring- in- sites available on the island. How is it that in this day and age, with so much awareness from the media, some people still persist in disposing of their litter in such an irresponsible way? When will we learn to care for the environment we live in?
