    Some people claim that not enough of the waste from homes is recycled. They say that the only way to increase recycling is for government to make it a legal requirement.

    To what extent do you think laws are needed to make people recycle more of their waste?

    A few people state that not a lot of trash from people’s homes is recycled. To combat this, they suggest that the only option is for the authorities to strictly enforce this as a requirement. I partially agree that laws are needed to be established for more waste to be recycled by people and this essay will also further elaborate on what other methods are needed.

    It is seen in today’s rural or urban society a lot of the waste is not being recycled from homes. Most of the waste is being accumulated and dumped underground when it could be recycled and be used for making something else useful. Glass bottles, cans, cardboard cartons are all being thrown and disposed of in dump pits at homes or on the roadside making it a very ugly sight. This is a dangerous practice as it cannot degrade on its own and can harm the environment and the ecosystems.

    The government can put up more regulations and enforce strict laws to curb this practice. Laws such as heavy fines for the repeated offenses will surely make people think twice before dumping their waste and not recycling it. Another way for the government to effectively make people practice recycling would be to put up clearer ways on how they can carry it out. Like the government can scatter donation boxes throughout cities where most people live so that people can donate old clothes to charity. Also, the same for recycling bins color-coded to indicate plastic, glass, and paper separately can be kept near people’s homes for easy access. And above all, if the people are not aware of the ill effects of not recycling the government should educate the people by conducting seminars and posting on social media to spread awareness.

    To sum up, I am certain that along with enforcing strict laws, the government must have a proper waste collection system in place together with educating the public and all these steps will help in the increase of recycling by people.

    The trash from home which goes for recycling is not sufficient according to some people. The only way which can double this process is that authorities should make it a legal obligation which will force people to recycle more of their waste. In my opinion, there is a great need of laws to make them aware about the reusable process and specify severe punishments to ensure proper recycling.

    To begin this, people should be made aware of avoiding certain things like use of plastic bags. They should be encouraged to use paper bags or bags made from cloth fabric. Also, it is the foremost responsibility of people to separate the waste into recycle and non- recycle and dump them in different bins. However, not many individuals are into the habit of recycling waste. This may be due to the negligence or lack of time.

    A new recycling law will ensure that enough waste is getting recycled because people are very careless about their waste management. People will abide by the rules only if there would be certain laws pertaining to that and from the concern of punishment or fine. For instance, people merely used to follow traffic rules in the past, however, with the strict fines and punishment, they have started following them and do not dare to cross the red light these days. Similarly, if the authorities start penalizing the defaulters, people will start this process out of fear. Government should also come up with idea of rewarding people for their extra efforts and for less waste produced by them.

    In conclusion, government should install large number of different bins at public places and ensure people abiding by the rules. More of advertisements related to this should be shown on television and radio. Children at school should be taught about the recycling process and how it can save our environment.

    Recycling of waste is one of the trending topic of today’s era. A lion share of people argue that there is a lack recycling of garbage produced by home. In order to manage, the government should enact strict laws. I completely accord with this statement and discuss my views in upcoming paragraph before forming an opinion.

    To commence with, a new recycling laws should be decree to manage the trash problem. Authorities should make a legal obligations to divide the degradable and non- degradable waste in different bins and pack them separately. Masses should follow reuse, reduce and recycle rule to minimize the number of waste that ends up in landfills. Moreover, there could be heavy fines and other punishments for people who does not obey the rules. For example, the center of Canada prisoned more than 300 citizens in 2010, who were fail to adhere their recycling law.

    As moving further, Government regulation is needed because people are out of time to save the environment and conserve natural resources. The soil, water and air pollution is increasing rapidly and is causing death of flora and fauna. Government can also start some programmes so that the rubbish can be recycled at a larger scale and the environment is made clean. For instance, The Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi initialized a programme named “Swach Bharat Abhiyan” which means clean India. This programme focusses on keeping the country clean and propagates the need of recycling waste material.<em style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>

    To recapitulate, Government should make it a legal issue and punish people who are reluctant to recycle their household trash. In the end, it is better to force people to pay a fine now than to pay with their lives later in a world which can no longer sustain life.

    A few people think that not much of the household waste is recycled. To encourage this they want the government to enforce a law to make it a requirement. Plastic containers, glass bottles, food and packaging cans, carton boxes are the common products from the daily household which can be easily recycled.

    Instead all these products are dumped in the dumpcarts or on the streets which harm the environment. I believe that forcing people to recycle their waste is not an appropriate solution, instead they can be advised to segregate their waste into categories and then dump them into the respective thrash cans. This will ensure that all the thrash which can be re-used from all the houses is collected in one place and the manufacturers can pick them up for recycling.

    As a substitute for metals, we have become greatly dependent on these plastics so much that we are not able to reduce using it. As a result this has generated a lot of waste over the period of time which is very harmful for the ecosystem. So to address the issue of recycling the government must create awareness about the effects of these products and promote the use of organic and degradable materials. Goods which cannot be reused must be banned. Fines can be imposed for producing non-recyclable commodities, for dumping waste in in-appropriate places.

    To conclude , I would like to say that compelling people to recycle their household waste is not an option. As an alternative the governing bodies must help people realize the importance and need for recycling their waste.

    It was claimed by some people that the waste of houses is not enough recycled. They suggested that government should make a law regarding recycling this is the only way to increase recycling.

    Government should start campaigns like why recycling of house’s waste is important for us and for the environment. So, that they can spread awareness among societies and villages in urban and rural areas and they should choose volunteers from schools and colleges they can make posters and by using creative ideas. Youth will play a major role in these campaigns because they will communicate with people and make them understand.

    When someone is caught twice or thrice dumping recyclable trash then instead of fine the government should give punishment of planting 1 plant in your place this will be more helpful for our environment.

    To conclude, Government should aware people of rural and urban areas about why recycling is helpful for our societies by starting campings and if people commit this mistake after knowing all the harmful effects of this waste then those peoples should be punished with planting a plant.

    Several people accept that the amount of recycled waste material is incomplete . Recycling I very essential part in our life to reduce waste material and save the enviornment. Generally, there are some people who may not increase recycling the waste product if they are guide them that recycle is very important part of our life by laws . In this essay , I will look at the way to increase more people to recycling by laws or other and explain my thought.

    Forming laws I very essential to motivate the people to expand the recycle because in this world there are lots of people who are not recycle the waste material which was reuse them in our life from their own motif . For example , there are lots of recycle the waste products like plastic pipes, papers, aluminum can and glass etc. Although they must have found a right place to destroy the waste material and recycled into the new things . Generally , they might not be aware to recycling the waste material because it was very easy to throw on the road and groove and they don’t prefer to use dustbin . When there are laws regarding recycling , people forced to not throw waste product here and there and recycled them at this recycling rate will increase more. If you don’t use recycling the waste product you should be punshied or may be penalty . Moreover , instead punishing people is not solution sometime they could give people reward who was recycling the waste material properly.

    On the other hand , Laws are not the solution sometime they could give reward for people who was recycled the waste products . Some countries are aware about the recycle is well- known in school .In school where teachers are teaching about the recycling and I home parents also teach us about recycling and save the money and enviornment.

    In conclusion , Recycling is the best method for saving money and envuirnment . In my opinion I think law is very important to force the people to recycle the waste material.

    Waste management at households should become a part of our daily routines and a lot of arguments could be observed regarding this. Whether people should take part in these activities themselves or the government should impose strict laws to reinforce recycling of waste. This essay will discuss why stringent law from government is required in order to make people responsible in managing trash at home.

    Making recycling as a legal requirement would help people participate in the recycling process because this can invoke fear in them of getting penalized or having to pay fine. For instance, in countries like UAE and Qatar, when the government identifies unhandled waste from household, a huge amount of fine has to be paid, which makes people cautious of segregating the wastes of their daily life. Hence the stricter the laws, the more aware people would be about trash management, which leads to a cleaner environment.

    Moreover, it is a harsh truth that many people do not participate in managing household waste due to their negligence or unawareness. In this case, the government can conduct various campaigns and roadshows on recycling, which will change people’s mindset on being more responsible towards the environment. For example, many environmental laws remained unknown to people in India, until in 2000 a government organization decided to conduct awareness programs through different mediums, after which the country has seen a tremendous improvement in managing their waste. Hence the more a government keeps its people aware, the more responsible they would be in protecting their nature.

    In conclusion, in order to make people understand and follow a healthy process of recycling to manage waste in household, it is essential that the government not only impose strict laws, but also try to create awareness as much as possible. This can result in a drastic difference in how people understand the value of keeping their house and environment healthier.
