WASTE CALENDAR

I know, the title sounds emm.....Let me explain. This morning i received a waste calendar for 2005. Its the councils calendar with all the pick up dates for big waste that is trashed from our homes. Each type of waste pick up is spread throughout the year. For example: green recycle is for any green waste such as grass chippings, flowers, weeds, twigs and prunning.

Its good and important to have councils, more so, councils that are split up and manageable. For example: The Kenyan govenrment has been talking about splitting the City council for years, unfortunately, politics seems to rule the game resulting in no action. Its time we as citizens demanded better service from the council. One way to do this, is to split them up in barrows. This would allow for better and efficient management. For example: define type of buildings in neighbourhoods and set the standards on cleanliness.

Here is the website for the council in my area - randwick council
There are lots of ideas to pick from, so lets start thinking smart and working smart as regards waste and keeping our environment clean.
A few ways to start:
-Get your neighbours together
-Find an issue and a solution to it
-Create a time and place where you all meet to discuss and act on things
There is no excuse for not doing something, as citizens we are responsible for our surrounding.
Chanuka!
