Letters to the editor...Litterbugs making a mess of the countryside

Full Text

Dear editor, My wife and I live in the country just outside Georgetown and have participated in the local cleanup of the roads, etc. for a few years now (Earth Day). It is amazing the amount of garbage that people throw out vehicle windows. We have no trouble filling the back of a pickup truck each year. What really makes us angry, is that after cleaning up the road, not even four hours later there is more. Coffee cups, fast food containers and anything else you can think of. Since the major cleanup my wife has been picking up a plastic bag full of litter on her walks with our dog almost every day. We have a beautiful country here, but why do some individuals continue to treat our country roads as their own dumping grounds? Maybe we need signs everywhere like the ones that Christ the King High School students made up, to constantly remind certain individuals to take your garbage home and dispose of it properly. We don't want it on our road. Take pride in the place we live in. You wouldn't like it if I dumped garbage at your place. Bill and Karen Gerrie, Limehouse
