Littering, as we all know, is very harmful to our environment yet some people continue to do it. Perhaps they are just too lazy to throw their garbage in the bins provided everywhere in town.
No one wants litter spoiling our land, lakes, or rivers. Besides being unsightly, litter pollutes the environment. It’s dangerous and has the potential to threaten our lives.
A few days ago I was walking around Cassie Hall Elementary School and I saw litter all around the front and back of this amazing school.
I picked it all up and threw it in one of the two trash bins located at the school. The garbage I found contained six beer cans! Some still had beer in them!
I found this alarming because beer is used by adults who should know better. Dirty syringes, food, wrappers and broken glass have been found in the past. This is hazardous to everyone and is an invitation to bears, stray dogs, etc.
A school is no place for litter, nor is any place. It is one thing to not recycle, but to throw your garbage on the ground is just careless and stupid.
People! We need to start using the garbage bins that are placed conveniently around our town.
Not only will this improve our environment; it will also save animal habitats. Our beaches, parks, schools, and streets will be clean and beautiful. Not everyone litters but for those who do, please use this information wisely.
I know if we all work together we can make our beautiful community a better place for everyone.
The next time you’re finished with an item that belongs in the trash don’t be afraid to just put it in the nearest trash bin.
These bins will not bite or harm you. In fact, I am sure, if they could talk, they would say thank you.
