A clean environment
 
Lately the environment in most housing areas have seen an increase in randomly strewn rubbish in the form of discarded plastic bottles, plastic bags and food wrappers of shapes and sizes. Unkempt hedges and clogged drains add to the general gloomy effect that is brought up by such neglect.

More often than not, rubbish bins get damaged due to the rough handling by the rubbish removal contractors. It is easy to imagine that this behavior of the workers is the same in all the other areas where they go. This is an irresponsible way to handle public property. Such matters must immediately be brought to the attention of the relevant authorities.

Maintaining the cleanliness of the environment is everybody's responsibility. More often than not, it is irresponsible behavior that leads to the accumulation of rubbish everywhere. If people were to be diligent about discarding bottles and plastic bags in the rubbish bins provided, this problem would not arise. So, it may be suggested that a re-education program be instituted by the Residents' Association. This may take the form of letters to all the residents as well as posters placed in strategic places like the office of the RA as well as near the entrance to lifts.

Such efforts should coincide with a communal effort at clearing up all the accumulated debris. Organizing a gotong royong for the purpose not only clears away the rubbish, it is also a useful method for the residents of a locality to become more familiar with each other and build up the communal spirit.

There must be a conscious awareness of the pest population in the locality. Rats and cockroaches are the most rampant when given the chance. The presence of cats in a neighborhood can work wonders to reduce the rat population. Pest control is a serious matter that has to be reported to the correct authorities so that they may send professionals who are trained to handle the poisons usually used to control pests.

An important factor in controlling mosquito-borne diseases like malaria and dengue is preventive action. It must be ensured that there is no stagnation of water where mosquitoes can breed. If the mosquito population is excessively high, we can always call the authorities to conduct fogging activities.

A clean environment can only be achieved when we understand our civic responsibility and do not behave in a manner detrimental to the upkeep of a clean environment. It is not just the responsibility of the government to ensure that the environment is always amenably clean. It is up to the citizens to take up the responsibility to address issues when they are small than to wait for the government to recognize when a problem has become large and then address it top down.
