    If local residents are to live comfortably garbage must be disposed of according to
the regulations. This means separating the garbage according to category and putting it
out on the designated days at a designated garbage collection point. If the regulations are not observed the garbage is not collected and local residents will be displeased. Kindly
remember that the garbage collection points rely on the good will of the landowner or
supervisor, and on the cooperation of everyone in the neighborhood.
