In England people who lived in towns just used to throw their rubbish outside the door. The streets are very bad.
There were many diseases in the City Gates because of the rubbish that people left and many people died.

In the earliest times there were no towns and people moved place to place. When people started to live in towns they put their rubbish in the landfills sites. Even people were finding answers. In China composted their rubbish. Then it changed to composts, which was very good for plants. Composting was the first example of recycling. But people took over their door their composts and the streets became a kaos. The solution of the problem was in 1354, with special workers. After appeared a nice idea of took the empty carts with rubbish. But finally factories were built and there were problems with diseases.

Over 2.500 years the governments started looking for solutions. In China the people started using rubbish as compost, it helps to grow up the plants better. In the towns of England people didn’t have garden and they threw away their rubbish in the street. It was a problem because the streets smelt very bad and nobody could walk in its. In 1354 the government began to employ people special workers to take the rubbish away. At the same time in Germany, a new rule said people who came to the towns to sold their fruit and vegetables can't return to their town with a empty card, they had to brought their cards with some rubbish.
Now we're recycling our rubbish and it became composts, or other products made with the same material.

The rubbish is a very importantn problem because if the people aren't conscious and the problem will be more dangerous. The people, left their rubbish in front of their houses and the sweepers don't want to pick up the garbage.

In London the streets became very dirty and sometimes it was impossible to walk in them. But the world’s biggest problems with the rubbish began when machines and factories were built. At the same time many people left their villages and came to live and work in the towns, so the towns got bigger and dirtier.

The text speaks about the history of the recycling and the garbage.
Since our conduct has evolved with the recycling and the environment.
Also it explains to us where they found the first landfill and as the people it was not recycling i therefore taken diseases.

During this evolution the rubbish now is not going to stop in the street but the dust-bins take this rubbish and throw away to a landfill.

Since the begining of human history, people has produced rubbish. This is an inevitable problem, because is impossible that the people stop to produce it.
In the earliest times they hunted their food, so they haven’t had much rubbish, but when people started to live in cities they contaminated with wood, smoke, ash and chunks of objects, and they used to leave their rubbish outside their homes. They tried some plans to have their city clean, but the only opne that resulted was to carry rubbish in the country, outside the city.
