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 .
which are picked up by Township trash trucks
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
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.
