Full Text

Dear editor, Recently we had a thaw and guess what appeared in all its not-glory? Garbage. And plenty of it. Just take a walk behind the A&P on Guelph Street-- it is disgusting. Unfortunately some idiots think that the snow will not only cover their filth but will magically make it disappear in the spring. There may be acid rain or other pollution in the snow but not enough to dissolve cans, plastic bags, cups, bottles and lots of paper. Maybe take-out restaurants should put a tariff/tax on "take-outs" to compensate for those who will do the clean-up, heal the animals who have plastic caught in their guts, etc. This should also apply to all stores using plastic bags-- when cloth bags would be so much more environmentally friendly and paper bags can break down. Now, come April the good citizens of this town must rally to pick up their lazy habits of throwing junk anywhere. Walk along almost any sidewalk, sideroad or park area. I dread to think of the condition of their cars and homes. I hope some of the guilty people are reading this and will do something about it.
