My book

» Posted by on Oct 3, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I was thinking of writing a book titled “I Am Not Your Personal Garbage Container.” The idea to pen this came about after a bicycle trip that I took. After traveling miles and miles through town after town I observed roadsides and yards and empty fields that had been littered with trash such as paper, soda cans, bottles and all manner of miscellaneous debris. I was even shocked to see that some people tossed old flattened tires to the side of the road and even an occasional plastic bag filled with trash. Being a staunch supporter of keeping our environment “green” I am somewhat dismayed at seeing such sights in my beloved America. It’s bad enough to go into a public bathroom and find paper towels and toilet paper just tossed onto the floor but to witness such widespread neglect and careless disposal of garbage right out there in the open for all to see. I find it despicable and personally disheartening that some of my fellow American citizens choose to treat the land around us so disrespectfully. I don’t pretend to have an answer to the problem but it has occurred to me that public area, such as malls, stores, restaurants, offices, etc. provide large receptacles in which one can discard waste material and rubbish. 

 

It seems to me that every individual in our great country would want to do their part to keep the land clean and healthy so let’s start right there. If you have trash you want to get rid of, do it in a responsible way. Carry a litter bag with you; in your purse, car or bike basket. Think about it! Pet walkers have the obligation to carry “waste” containers to pick up after a dog relieves itself on the street or someone’s property. It’s not that hard to tote a small bag. 

 

Another possible option would be for cities to rent and strategically place commercial size trash receptacles along roadways in Florida towns. Besides offering convenience to folks on the go, it would be a great way to advertise! Just paint “Dumpster Rentals Davie, FL” or the name of whatever city it happens to be on the front of the container! Just a thought from a concerned American!
