Let's bin it


Many years ago, I went to subordinate court just to know about the procedure of court hearing. I could see so many lawyers, police officers, offenders, etc. I passed by court no.13, I could see many people queuing up, I asked a man why so many were here. He told me they were to answer the offence--littering.
In this city, if we caught littering by enforcement officers, we will be fined $200. If we do the same offence again, we will be fined more or need to clean up the designated area.
$200 is not a small amount for low income family, so please do not spend the hard earned money just to pay for that fine, you will feel " great pain "
Why people still want to litter here and there? I believe this is a bad habit from young.
This is the time that we need to respect " rubbish " also, if we do not respect it, then we are likely to pay $200 or more.
I hope all of you treat " rubbishes " as money, let's put them into the bank[ bin ].
Let's bin it, do not let enforcement officers have the chance to catch us. Am I right?

Hello coolingstar9,

$200, It's quite a big fine. I agreed that we should keep it in the bin, it is best way. The city will be tidy, clean and we will be not fined.

Thank for your sharing experience.

Rubbish should always go into the pocket until it can go elsewhere. Littering is a disguising thing that so many Latin Americans have not learned yet... There is too much litter around her...

AGreed!...too bad..we dont have tht kinda 'enforcement' here..

oh, that rule should apply here in our country too! i believe it should be mandatory and more so a moral obligation and a social responsiblity to every citizen to keep our environment clean and green! take care always, coolingstar! : )

Have a great day.

I wish my country could implement the same. We have laws alright but they are not strictly implemented and more often than not, the lawmakers are the lawbreakers. No wonder we are a Third World COuntry, sigh!

BTW, I am now your follower, wink!

Scotty's Princess,
You wish your country could implement the same.
I believe all can do it, start from myself.
Thanks for following me, wish you happy and healthy.

I have been to Singapore and was so delighted to find such a clean city.

Generally, most countries of the World have a lot to learn about cleaning up the environment and there is no better way to start than with our own personal "rubbish".

We can start every good habit by taking action ourselves. It really is that simple!
