My neighbours either burn their wastes or dump them in the river or an unsuspecting neighbour's land. For us all this while we have been carrying our garbage out and dumping it at the local market which is about 10km away. That is the nearest place with proper dumping facilities. So the decision to recycle is really a matter of necessity. Reducing wastes means reducing several 20km trips weekly.
So far, what have we done (we in this sentence refers to my mom and I).
