Soapbox...

I live in what I feel is a very nice suburb. We have nice amenities, the parkway, a state of the art rec. center and what I believe to be good city services. For instance, the city provides trash recepticles throughout the area so if someone is driving or walking by, they can discard their trash without polluting the community......

On my daily walk/run through the park, I am constantly reminded of the disrespect many people have for our city, parks and other people's property! Sorry, but it JUST slays me to see trash just strewn about all because certain individuals feel it is their right to just throw the trash out of their car windows! Why can't people just wait until they get to the office or home to discard their coffee cup or water bottle???


This is an example... makes me ill that someone would just throw their garbage out on someone else's tree lawn... would they throw their garbage out on their own lawn as they pull in their drive way after a long day's work??!! JUST sickens me!




Here's a sewer grate that is literally 20 feet away from the trash can in the first picture!



I guess I will have to resort to taking a trash bag with me on my walks..maybe passers by will get the hint! I hope to rally my city government to start a clean up campaign! or better yet propose a city tax for city clean up.... maybe that will get the public to take pride in their city and help keep it clean to avoid a tax penalty!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog today.
I agree with you about trash and lazy people - I don't get it.

That's terrible - good for you for helping pick it up. We live near the beach and are horrified by the garbage we find - we also clean up as much as we can.

I have volunteered for many a "Clean-up" and it is really horrifying at how people abuse the planet earth!
We had a yard sale "once" and I made lemonade and brownies which were free, and later we found cups just littered about. Made me so sad. Litter makes me sad.

Horrible. But we have the same reactions in France ! Except for wine...

Brilliant Asylum said...

I don't know how people can litter. It feels so wrong. I will chase one of those magazine subscription cards a mile down the beach if the wind takes it from me.
