Many tourists visit goa for consuming cheap beer, whisky and alchoholic drinks, yet few steps are taken to ensure that the beer, drink, bottles and cans do not litter the place. In larger cities, these glass bottles or cans are collected almost immediately because the raddhi wala or scrap shop will pay a premium for the beer, whisky bottles. In middle class households with drinkers , the drink bottle will be collected by the servant of the house, who will sell it and get some extra money.
However in Goa, the empty drink bottles like Carlsberg and Royal Challenge remain littered on the footpath and drains for a long time. Not only do they make the place look dirty, during the monsoon the drains get clogged, resulting in flooding of the area. So there is an urgent need of an official who will arrange for trash collection from public areas or at least formulate rules to regulate junk dumped in public areas.
In larger cities, they will pay Rs 1 or more per bottle, why are efficient recycling systems not introduced elsewhere
