Waste and rubbish dumped in landfills can take up to 500 years to degrade.
The only way to stop filling up our planet with rubbish is to be careful about what we throw away.
We, the undersigned, call on each individual to take a responsible attitude while disposing of their house waste.
Each one of us should clean and sort their rubbish before discarding them, and recycle as much as possible.
The Stop landfills petition to DBKL Kuala Lumpur Malaysias was written by marie Tseng and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
