my morning run I passed by two workers from Sanitation Services along the road
collecting trash that had been tossed, likely out of windows of passing
vehicles. How lucky we are to have these men who clean up after us! I call out to
them, "Hey you are doing a great job!", and they look up and smile. I keep on
my pace thinking that this job should not be necessary, all but perhaps once a
year. Are we now dependent on these workers to clean up after us? Does it
reduce the garbage and promote the tossing?
many countries it is against the law to litter. Large fines are the outcome.
Living on an island the trash can only remain here with us, or worse make its way into our ocean, and head off perhaps to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Luckily we have a
great waste receptacle called, Sanitation Services. I toured their Pine Ridge
Landfill facility when I first moved here with my children. It is quite
advanced, and I'd encourage each and every school to tour their local garbage management facility in order to
educate our youth about ecology and the responsibility each of us have to keep
our home, island, world clean...
Toss it IN...the BIN!
