It is indeed regrettable that environmental sanitation across the country has been relegated to the background, according to the minister, stressing that many people hardly complied with the monthly exercise observed in many states. An example of an externality is when a factory produces waste pollution which may be dumped into a river, ultimately contaminating water.
