Every home in Los Angeles deals with junk and garbage every day and there are various families which use local recycling centers, while other families use waste removal services or dumpster rental to dispose of their waste.
Whether it is the rubbish from a normal household or commercial waste materials, the removal of junk is all that matters in the end in order to have a better land and air around us. The main problem arises when it comes to removing the toxic and hazardous wastes from the environment.
Here are the main effects of improper rubbish removal.
1. Soil Deterioration
The main negative effect of improper waste removal is soil pollution.
There are various types of contagious and hazardous chemicals which end up leaking in the land which deteriorates the quality of the soil and the groundwater as well. Not only the plants grown from this soil will be potentially carrying diseases, but the humans who will survive from eating these plants will have to face a lot of illnesses in the future.
That’s why it is so important for every house to take proper care of management of their recycling. Metals, glass, plastics and electronic wastes can be recycled easily at your local recycling centers. It should only take a short time to separate waste types in order to bring the recycling waste to a good use.
2. Air pollution
Not only is the land polluted by some waste materials, but the waste which contain hazardous chemicals can release harmful gases if not disposed of properly.
There are plastics and papers which when burnt in the landfills emit a huge amount of gases and chemicals which are damaging the ozone layer and also resulting in a greenhouse effect.
Waste which releases dioxins can also be risky for our health and the release harmful chemicals into the air. Much methane gas is released when waste is getting decomposed in the landfills and it is never beneficial for humans, as methane in the air is an extremely potent greenhouse gas. Ultimately, the gas produced by landfill waste can be harmful and explosive which can hurt the people living near the landfill area and beyond.
3. Water Pollution
The dangerous waste in the environment settles in the land and then pollutes the groundwater. Water is used for irrigation, drinking, and other household purposes and it can be harmful for the people if they consume such polluted water. These untreated waste materials can also lead to making the rivers and water streams more dirtier and more polluted.
Sewage which is not treated by the municipal corporation can be harmful to the marine life which comes into contact with this polluted water. A huge amount of marine habitats can be threatened with water pollution.
4. The negative effect on human health
The health of the population can get worse with the improper disposal of garbage or waste.
The population living near landfills is mostly affected by this. The workers and employers at the landfills are at an even higher risk. The waste which is not handled properly can create skin infections and respiratory problems for the people.
5. Dangerous effect on animals and marine life
The waste handled with carelessness can have a hazardous effect on animals and marine life.
Animals have to suffer the pollution aftereffects and they suffer from diseases because of it, all because of human behavior. Cigarette butts and Styrofoam are known for the cause the deaths of marine animals who consume them. The animals consuming grass and plants near the landfill area also get caught with diseases.
6. Birth of Disease-carrying pests
In sewage areas and polluted water, mosquitoes and dangerous rats breed and both of them are life-threatening.
They create a huge amount of diseases in humans which can cause death. Malaria and dengue are the two life-threatening diseases caused by mosquitoes and rats cause leptospirosis and salmonellosis. That’s why one should ensure to have clean water near homes or society.
7. Bad effect on the local economy
Who doesn’t want to live in a clean and healthy society?
Of course, everyone wants to as it can attract tourists and investors in the country. Everyone gets impressed by cleanliness and repulsed by dirt, and that’s why it is very important for you to keep your society and country clean.
8. Missed recycling opportunities
Recycling also creates revenue for various people and companies. The cities where there is no proper removal and recycling of waste miss the best opportunities to earn additional income with this . Production of cheap resources is also missed with no recycling of waste.
9. The extreme change in climate
Due to the emission of harmful gases into the atmosphere, heat is getting trapped in larger amounts every year, with a rise in CO2 in the atmosphere and global temperatures. This results in a greenhouse effect which is the main reason for the recent climate anomalies. People have to witness strong storms, floods, and droughts because of such a change in the environment.
10. Slow poison for Planet
