Improper garbage disposal is a continually growing problem at global, regional and local levels. In Municipality of Polomolok, segregation has been implemented by the government because it is one of the most important activities that people need to apply in their daily lives.

Waste that is not properly manage, especially liquid and solid waste from households are a serious health hazard and can lead to the spread of cholera, Typhoid fever and Dengue. It may put the people’s health at risk.
A disease like Cholera is one of the diseases that you will get from improper waste disposal.

People nowadays are suffering environmental dilemmas such as global warming, flashfloods and landslides. One of the causes of these problems is the misbehavior of the people towards throwing their garbage everywhere.
Global Warming is the rise in average surface temperature on Earth, which can be divided into two categories including natural and human influences. The trash in landfills releases methane gas, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. The proper Garbage Disposal is one of the solutions that can prevent global warming. This may include Reduce, Recycle and Reuse. These methods are powerful phrase with equally opportunities for maintaining a clean air.
During rainy seasons, flashfloods are one of the most common warnings to all residents in a community. Flashfloods defines as any flood that develops in a less than six hours. They can occur almost anywhere but are most commonly found in low-altitude areas with poor drainage systems. In order to prevent this kind of calamity, people need to segregate properly their garbage since mostly they are thrown at canals and creeks that caused flooding whenever heavy rains come. People can minimize flood risk by practicing proper waste disposal to prevent trash from clogging the municipal’s drainage system.
Climate change is one of the biggest crises facing humanity. Improper waste disposal is also the cause of this calamity. The proper management of waste disposal and recycling affects climate change by decreasing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and saving energy. In our community, government should advocate that our garbage is our responsibility. People should know how to properly segregate their garbage.
Proper Garbage Disposal can help to develop our environment such as wildlife, agriculture and forest life. In order to achieve this development people should cooperate.
Wildlife traditionally refers to undomesticated animal species but has come to include all plants that grow or live wild in an area without being introduced by humans. The misbehavior of people towards throwing their garbage everywhere can lessen the population. Because it is easy for them swallowed, which may block their digestive systems and kill them. So, in order to save all innocent animals, people need to practice themselves to put the garbage in the trash can. By the help of this people can contribute to improve our environment.
Agriculture is also improving if we continue not to throw the garbage anywhere and segregate. Since, our community is very well known because of pineapple plantation. People must help the company to have healthy products to export to the international market. It is for the people who are living in the community to have a better future. Because of Dole company, there is a possibility that this community will become a city.
Forest also provide habitat for a vast array of plants and animals. They protect our watersheds, they supply the oxygen that we need to survive, and they also provide the timber for products that we used, in short, it improves the quality of our lives. In order to protect it, People must reduce the garbage problems by the methods of the government has given to us. This may include Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. If the people will use these methods, people can help our community to improve its environment.
Proper Garbage Disposal can be successfully done not only by the program of the government. People can also do it inside and outside of their home. If people know how to use it by the concept of waste management, fewer problems will be encountered. The cleanliness and orderliness of the community is in the hand of every family.
