Discard waste properly

A few days ago, I was very surprised to see my friend, a university student, throwing waste through the window. I warned him about what he was doing only to realise that he actually does not care. It is common for many educated people to throw waste like plastic bags, and bottles on the street. At the end of the day, these discarded materials cause various problems like clogging of the sewerage especially during the monsoon, amongst others.

It's a shame that educated people remain unaware of the seriousness of this issue. How can we then expect the uneducated people to abide by the rules? I believe the government needs to take some strict measures to curb the irresponsible discarding of waste materials. It should be considered a crime and those who commit it must be punished or fined. There is no other way.
