Evening litter walk. We found enough trash and recyclables at one stop sign to fill a large garbage bag in just 30 minutes! 😢 The biggest culprits: plastic shopping bags, liquor bottles and fast food debris (paper bags, plastic cups, straws and coffee cups).
It appears people took the opportunity to throw the trash out of their cars when they were stopped and figured no one would care since there are no houses nearby 😞 Then the city came and mowed the area without picking up the garbage first, making for an even bigger mess 😥
As we collected the trash, one driver rolled down his window and thanked us for our efforts. 😁 It already felt good knowing that we prevented this trash from going into the nearby sewer drains. But that driver made us feel even better. 💚
