I came across this illegal dumping of garbage in an abandoned industrial near Penang and some of the vacant shop lots in the suburb. Apparently, the garbage has been there for quite some time and nothing can be done to stop all this. Everything from auto spare parts to rubber scraps, sharp metals to construction debris have been discarded in the area. I seriously believe that there are several illegal dumps like this occurs in other places as well.
It’s already bad enough that the precious air quality has been deteriorated due to the changing climate regime and now this! As I was passing by certain alleys, I could smell the putrid aroma which was not appealing and palatable. It looks like an absolute junkyard filled with piles of garbage bags, and empty boxes accumulating in driveways and alleys. I hope the city council would introduce new measures to curb the amount of illegal dumping in the city.
These pictures reveal a small glimpse of what an abandoned lot looks like these days. :(
The improper disposal of garbage poses a threat to both the humankind and environment
