Trash On Our Roadsides

What can we do to make our roadsides, parking lots etc., cleaner?
 

8-09  Several  "clean -up" campaigns have been led township wide in neighborhoods . These are wonderful efforts on behalf of all the citizens involved and with great support from our township.  It is a positive,  proactive approach to solving a problem and it encourages neighbors to get together - and the more they get together, the better . This unity  will then help them come together to solve other problems as well.  The only drawbacks that I see is that there are  sometimes dangerous items ( sharp, rusted  or toxic for example),  that it is dangerous to be out in & near the roads and that ultimately it might miss encouraging a township plan for dealing with the trash on our streets that comprehensively covers all neighborhoods and business districts, not just the ones where neighbors were united through these outstanding efforts.   But huge kudos to every organizer & volunteer who stepped forward to deal with the problem.

4-3-06  Just read an article about a state program that included a campaign to of awareness as to the costs of litter as well as a hotline  to report littering when it is seen.  A huge part of prevention was convincing the police to write tickets for littering and to get them to enforce it .  

 Our township has instituted a program in some areas where the Montgomery County DUI service "volunteers" come, I believe once a month, to pick up trash in some particularly difficult areas. The workers pick up the trash & then leave the large bags
which are picked up by Township trash trucks

3-31-06    We need to find out what is working in other townships - Down on the main line I see very little trash along one of the busiest thoroughfares, Lancaster Pike and wonder why our roads don't look like that .  We will have to find out how they do that and report back.
