Last Monday when I was about to get a ride going to the hospital, my son and I showed disappointment and anger because of the sight of the garbage bags in front of our gate. I even made a reminder that it is not allowed to throw the garbage in that particular area- the allowed place is a little farther than where those garbage are thrown. I immediately called out my sister and showed her the extent of the garbage; she in turn went to a neighbor who is a local official. The residents living near the provincial road are the ones throwing their garbage in the undesignated areas. Worse, the bags are not tightly tied and with one scratch of a chick, the baby diapers are already out of the bag. Last night, my son and my sister placed a sensor light that looks like close circuit television unit (CCTV) facing the gate. The ‘CCTV’ look-alike is not concealed and it is out so the people throwing their garbage will realize their actions are ‘seen’ by us. There is a CCTV focused in that area where garbage should be piled for the collection of the dump truck; unfortunately it is not functioning, and it is just a show-off. I hope tomorrow, there will be no more garbage in front of our gate.

That would be upsetting. I live in a rural area. I am appalled by the amount to trash that people toss in our ditches and right on some of the less travelled roads.

i guess there are unruly and disrespectful people all around the world. there are even some stopping by with their tricycle and tossing their trash in front of our gate. this morning before i drove out, a man wanted to throw his garbage and i looked at him sharply that he placed his plastic bag far from our gate.

@ridingbet What if someone will throw garbage in front of their place? How would they feel?

@JustBhem that is what my sister would always shout out when she is outside. "HAY NAKU, BAKIT DI NILA KAYANG ITAPON ANG BASURA SA TAPAT NG BAHAY NILA? TAKOT MARUMIHAN?" (why don't they stock up their garbage in front of their houses? are they scared to get dirty?)

I hope those people throwing their thrash get reprimanded for doing the wrong thing. And I hope you can put a working camera.

i hope that CCTV will be operational, because it is really bad if this attitude of the neighbors will go a long way again.

That too happens in the subdivision where I live. People would dump their garbage in a dark place of the road, for the garbage truck that only comes at nigh 9:00 for Tuesdays , Thursdays and Saturdays. And usually, some would dump it there and will stay there for many days since maybe the garbage truck wasn't able to pick them up. The helper and my brother-in-law, takes all our garbages in green big trash bags and wait for the garbage truck by the road where it passes at 9:00 p.m.

what you do is the most preferred way of throwing the garbage. for us, sometimes my son or my sister waits for the truck to stop and collect the trash. sometimes too, my son places the bag right in front of our gate, not in that area in the picture. so far, so good. because the sensor light gets on when there is a slight movement, the unruly neighbors don't throw their garbage in that area as shown in the picture.

@SIMPLYD i believe the sensor is doing its 'fake' job. when the light is on with a slight motion, these unruly neighbors throw their trash far from our gate. it is serving its purpose now.+

This is horrible, shame you do not have a real camera so you can report those people to the local police.

yes that is true. actually, there is a CCTV focused on the place where the garbage should be collected by the dump truck, but i don't really know if it is now functioning or not yet. right now, we are posting our comments with my 2 big brothers about this garbage problem, on FB

It's really annoying. People should respect your place and stop putting their garbage there. Hope it will be collected by garbage collectors to clear your gate

this morning, there was a pile of cut leaves, branches and twigs neatly placed in that area in front of the gate. my sister and i saw it, and i shook my head but my sister said it was not garbage per se, but just plants. i told her, it is still trash so it should not be placed there at all.

How irresponsible of them to do that. That's a lot of garbage! Hopefully the sensor light would help deter them from doing that again.

yes we did, but there is no action just yet. my older brother told me a few minutes ago on FB that the concern should be addressed to the local office, but our barangay chairman is not prioritizing this problem

I also have this problem every now and then. Unfortunately they do it under cover of darkness. I hope your trick works.

indeed, some residents are wise to throw their garbage at night, and this morning, there were garbage plastic bags in front, but a little farther. i think the sensor light was on when it felt some movements. the effect of the sensor light was, it lit and it focused on the one where the movement originated.

How irresponsible. I'm referring to the people who throw their garbage on the inappropriate place.
