Pick up your trash!

Springtime is one of the most beautiful seasons with the flowers blooming and the trees starting to leaf out. Unfortunately, there is a serious problem that I have noticed this spring in terms of litter and trash on our streets.

It is unfathomable why anyone would drop garbage and other debris in the streets, especially when we are lucky enough to live in such a great area. This problem, however, seems to be on the increase, especially in front of some of the local businesses.

I hope that the Department of Sanitation will continue to do their job of keeping our streets clean. However, it is up to each of us to dispose of our litter and trash properly. This includes dog waste. It is particularly irksome when people do not pick up after their pets and leave the dog poop on the grass or the sidewalk.

We all need to do our part to ensure that our communities remain beautiful and desirable areas in which to live. It really does not takes a lot of effort, if we all pitch in, to keep our neighborhoods neat and clean and green!
