My research will be about the trash that is seen all over the sidewalks, streets, and everywhere we see trash at and what are the effects of leaving trash everywhere on the planet.I noticed wherever I go I see trash on the sidewalks and on the streets around my home and around the high school I graduated from and I even seen people dropping their trash on the floor making Sanitation workers do more work than they have to.Trash also goes through landfills and recycling plants but that is only a small amount because most of our trash is all around us and is hurting the environment and us humans and animals that live in this type of environment.Some of our trash actually ends up in the ocean affecting wildlife and causing large amounts of the marine life to decrease.Plastic around the marine environment gain more dangerous polutants like PCB’s,DDT,and PAH which in turn affects animals and humans negatively. Other chemicals that can be found are Bisphenol A, Phthalates, Vinyl Chloride, Dioxin, and Styrene and they are harmful chemicals.Even oil refineries cause polution that are carried through the air which reaches from the warm south to the cool arctic which the chemicals drop and affect marine life.The questions I have are what other effects of trash being left everywhere are? Where is trash mostly seen at? Who is trying to clean up the trash left around? When will the effects of trash pollution take place? Why do people leave trash around? How much trash gets into recycling plants and landfills? In my map will be areas where trash is mostly seen and where recycling plants and landfills are located.
