My big rant is seeing garbage picked apart by gulls and crows.

It’s obvious the garbage isn’t being recycled as there was food in the green garbage bag as well as paper, cans. etc. Now it’s all over the road right as you make that big turn. WHY can’t people take the time to recycle properly?!

It’s not hard to do and birds wouldn’t be pecking at your garbage if the food portion was in the GREEN BIN!!!

Also, people who put two green bags at two different sites on their property. Rarely do you see a blue bag or the green bin out.

Why are some people getting away with this I wonder. And heaven help us if the bag blows away from your yard a bit and lands three feet from the road. It’s left there and not picked up.

Isn’t it just dandy to see garbage all over town?

What is your biggest pet peeve in your neighbourhood?
