THE DISPOSAL OF RECYCLABLE GARBAGE IN BAYAN LEPAS, PENANG Group 1
Background Information Continues using plastic bag Lack of knowledge in recycling
Background Information “Awareness of recycling among the public and willingness to recycle is high but the lack of Infrastructure and legislative support causes a high level of frustration mixed with Cynicism. The over-reliance on (the same group of) volunteers may leave community Recycling programmes and activities vulnerable to exhaustion and failing momentum. However, household composting efforts being promoted have gained strong acceptance Among the people of Penang.”(P.2) - Penang Economic Monthly, September 2008 Volume 10, Issue 9 “One of Phee’s ideas for a green state is the 100 Steps to Cleanliness programme that will place decorative 3R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) bins on the sides of major roads and at tourists spots. These solar- powered decorative bins are fully private-sponsored, and the council collects advertisement revenue from the operator. The main objective of such bins is to act as a constant reminder for people to segregate their waste.” – penangmonthly.com/ideas-and-actions-for-a-green-state/, feature – December 22, 2011
Background Information Notes: “Now days, Many people do not recycle simply because they are unfamiliar with their town's recycling procedures and pick-up times. Studies about how materials need to be prepared (example : boxes cut, labels remove) have led people to abandon recycling altogether. Recycling has been more prevalent in communities where funding was put toward raising community awareness about the specifications of the recycling program.” Notes: “One of Phee’s thoughts for a green state is the 100 Steps to Cleanliness programme that will locale decorative 3R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) bins on the factions of main roads and at tourists spots. These solar-powered decorative bins are fully private-sponsored, and the council accumulates advertisement revenue from the operator. The main goal of such bins is to deed as a steady reminder for people to segregate their waste.”

As consumers, we should not wait for our governments to tackle the problem of plastic bags. Change ultimately comes from everyone be it from to law restrictions of our government or from our own volition. Moreover, the most important contribution to such a campaign must come from the consumer. ” - http://www.mindfully.org/berkeley/berkeley-plastic-past-force.htm - report of the Berkley task force. http://www.mindfully.org/berkeley/berkeley-plastic-past-force.htm

Objective To Recommend solution to the problems of recycling To identified the causes of environmental issue Effects of environmental issues
Objective At the moment, many major political parties in the Penang are making policies on waste and recycling. One of the main arguments airs whether or not rubbish bins should be collected weekly or fortnightly. Their idea is that they should collect the rubbish bins every fortnight, rather than every week, and also that recycling bins should be collected every week. This is a good idea in many ways, because if people's bins are not emptied every week, but their recycling bins are it will force more people to recycle. However many people believe that this is just a money saving scheme as tipping the rubbish is extremely expensive. Also many people are concerned about hygiene, if the bins are not emptied and people refuse to recycle then they may dump their rubbish in the street. Another political idea is to measure the weight of the rubbish and charge people accordingly. The government propose that the heavier the rubbish, the more you get charged. This is to encourage people to do more recycling and to get rid of less waste.
Objective Notes: “At the moment, countless main governmental parties in the Penang are making strategies on rubbish and recycling.

Objective The Overpopulation are hardly solved. Many of us have grown up learning and being told that 6 billion is too much and this "over population" is primarily impacting the planet's ability to cope. But is that really the case? Sure, the planet is facing incredible stress. Studies point to ecological limits to sustain people, but these limits can be different, based on the way we consume resources etc so it is hard to say for sure what over population means let alone if we are at some threshold, below, or above it. - Peach EU forums Addict Posts: 467Joined: 17 Mar 2009, 20:04 Peach
