What sort of people throw garbage out of their vehicles? No one I know personally does that, at least, they say they don't, and I believe them. I am aware that some one in a big, big truck had been parking at the driveway entrance and eating lunch. Why my driveway, I have no idea, but that person or persons, also fed my big dog, Ofcharka. He then got the idea that every big truck was going to bring him food, so he would run out when he heard the whir of the motor and stand in front of the truck wagging his tail. Measures were taken so he would stay home and so far, they seem to be working.
But, this load of garbage is from the entrance point of my driveway. There are pizza boxes from the Pizza Hut fast serve at the Tags gas station in Elk Point, beer cans, cigarette papers, chip bags, McDonald's trash most likely from the McDonald's in St Paul. Some one even graced me with a container from oil and windshield washer fluid. Numerous corrugated cardboard bits, plastic bags, papers, candy wrapper, chocolate bar wrappers and Subway trash were part of the mix.
I am disgusted. Much of this fast food garbage could have been disposed of properly, but in this part of the world, very little to no recycling is done and everything is tossed into the landfill containers. Plastics, glass and cans are not recycled. When I asked about the glass, I was told it only turns to sand in the dump, so why bother. Oh well. Picking up the trash will not stop people from throwing it out of their vehicles. I just wanted to rant a little about the horrible job of picking up after people who are not conscious enough to take care of themselves and the environment. So sad.
