4. Finally, Clean the Brain and Not the Drains
Waste affects every one of us in Bhutan. Everyday whether be it at home or at work, we dispose off so much wastes. Waste disposal is an emerging problem in almost all the urban towns in Bhutan. The increase in waste generation can be primarily attributed to factors such as rapid rates of urbanization, rural urban migration, changing consumption pattern and high population growth rate. While the magnitude of the problem is relatively small and manageable in rural areas, it appears to be growing significantly in urban areas in recent times (SACEP 2010).
