Addressing litter and illegal dumping will make the community safer for everyone

Sometimes it’s just tossed right in the front of my driveway.

Re: Illegal dumping.

This is a problem that so many people see and do every day, but it never seems to change, and I, as a teenager, am concerned about this.

Illegal dumping is a big problem, not because it doesn’t make the city look good, but because the trash is just left there and that can attract unwanted animals, which can lead to dangerous situations

I have been in the car and pass by this large pile of junk just lying there on the side of the road away from houses.

I have come home from school and there are pieces of trash thrown in my front yard where my family wouldn’t usually see it.

Sometimes it’s just tossed right in the front of my driveway, things such as a full fast food milkshake cup.

I have gone down alleyways before with friends and have seen tons of used condoms, needles and bags with unknown things in them. It can be dangerous to take children and pets down certain areas because you don’t know what they could pick up.

If we were to take care of this problem more efficiently, we might be able to make it safer for everyone else in the community.
