why it should be the responsibility of the resident on the ground of health. As for those who argue that the
government
ought to be responsible for waste removal, they feel
this
way because residents pay huge taxes. Authorities deduct a certain amount of money from their earnings for administering good governance, which includes but not limited to a neat and tidy
environment
for people to dwell in harmony.
Such
statutory deduction is more than enough for the
government
to procure vans and pay personnel for cleaning the streets and make the area look good. The New York Times,
for instance
, reported that in 2018, an approximate sum total of 3 trillion dollars was withdrawn from employees as a chargeable tax on income. It is,

government
annually received significant finance for taxpayers to run a beautiful

This

For example
