Q. 184.3( 3 Votes )

After the examinations Rakesh with his friends went on a picnic to a nearby park. All friends carried cooked food packed in plastic bags or plastic cans. After eating the food some friends collected the leftover food and plastic bags etc. and planned to dispose them off by burning. Rakesh immediately checked them and suggested to segregate the leftover food and peels of fruits from the plastic materials and respectively dispose them off separately in the green and red dustbins placed in the corner of the park.

(a) In your opinion, is burning plastic an eco-friendly method of waste disposal? Why? State the advantage of the method suggested by Rakesh.

(b) How can we contribute in maintaining the parks and roads neat and clean?

Answer :

(a) Burning of plastic is not an eco-friendly method of waste disposal because it produces toxic gases which causes air pollution. It has an adverse effect on the health of all types of living organisms.

The method of waste disposal suggested by Rakesh is advantageous as the leftover food and peels of fruits are biodegradable and can be used as manure. The plastic bags and cans should be disposed off in different dustbins from where they can be sent for recycling, thus keeping the environment clean.

(b) We can contribute in maintaining the parks and roads neat and clean by segregating the garbage as biodegradable and non biodegradable so that it can be easily disposed. We should not litter around in parks and on roads. One should follow the rules that are laid by government.
