Don't Trash the Town
While strolling downtown Southern Pines on a beautiful Sunday morning, I noticed a lot of litter around our basketball courts. With two trash bins and one recycle bin nearby, I counted 47 plastic bottles and cans on the grassy areas. Disgraceful!
Who are these people who trash our parks? Do they trash their homes? Their cars? I’m just askin’!
Perhaps a town maintenance crew could include Sunday mornings on its schedule. Perhaps a civic club could volunteer to pick up behind litterers.
Perhaps someone could police the area on Saturday nights and issue tickets for littering. The town could post signs on the bins, “Stash Your Trash” or “Place Plastics Here.” I’m just sayin’.
