These are popular steps leading down to Marsalforn Bay. A can full of used engine oil, was thrown down these steps. Somebody threw it out of the car window to get rid of it without thinking what damage and danger is caused. Instead it can be recycled. It can be extremely dangerous and slippery for people, especially for young children, using the steps to go to the beach. Children may touch the oil. It is hazardous if it comes in contact with their skin or even worse if they touch their face, eyes and mouth. Also, the sight of oil on the steps is a great throwback to tourists and locals. This is a huge eyesore.Our economy greatly depends on the tourist industry. The oil together with the rubbish thrown away carelessly make the area look shabby and unwelcoming, besides being of great danger to people and the surrounding environment.

Many people take out their garbage very early and leave it in the street, not hanging. Dogs and cats tear bags that are in the streets and nobody cleans the mess. Some people use the street as a dustbin because they throw everything in the street. Skips are there for nothing because garbage is left next to them. Roundabouts and streets are used as toilets because they are full of dog litter. Even at the seaside people leave litter behind them. We should take care of our environment or we will end up living in a junkyard.
