Q: Do you think if we start throwing garbage inside dustbins, this problem can be solved?

A: This is not such an easy job, clearing out the dustbins have to be done regularly and everyone should stop throwing garbage outside the dustbins.

Q: Who do you think is mainly responsible for this?

A: We are the people who are responsible for all this. If we educate others around us and people like maids who throw the garbage, it will help making it a cleaner place.

Q: Do you have any personal experiences to share with us regarding this topic

A: Yes, a few months back I saw a few people throwing garbage into the open fields (the one next to DLF), I tried to stop them and tell them to throw it in the dustbin but they dint seem to listen, so I myself went ahead, picked it up and put it in the dustbin.

Q: If we get more bins around here do you think this problem will be solved?

A: No, this will not change unless the peoples mentality changes, and they start becoming aware of the problems that are being created.

Q: What do you think you can do to stop this problem?

A: I think I can first myself start putting garbage into the bins, and then start telling people around me to do so too.

Q: What do you think is the future of this? Will there be any change?

A: Yes, of course there will be a change. It might take sometime but it will be a very clean place if we work towards it.
