I took this photo when I went for a walk with my family in the countryside in Baħrija. I still can’t believe my eyes that after so many talks about taking care of the environment, there are still people who don’t care and dump their rubbish anywhere they want. We are lucky that in Malta we have five different civic amenity sites which open every day and are free of charge for the public to make use of. Even Local Councils offer free services to come to our house and pick up bulky waste. Unfortunately sometimes people seem not to be bothered to use this service. We definitely need to increase the awareness and help people understand the real impacts of such actions. At the end of the day it does not only boil down to eyesores but direct impacts on our surroundings – which basically shape our lives.
