Remember this PSA?

i hate people that litter as well. i keep those plastic WalMart bags in my truck to keep trash in. lots of times i empty mine out at the store when gassing up my truck and get a fresh bag from under the seat.

heck, you can pack a bunch of them into the space the size of a baseball.

IMO, i just can't understand the reasoning behind throwing trash outside your vehicle onto the road and ditches.

i have trashcans at the house. i have a huge dumpster at work that i can use and do sometimes. i use the trashcans at the store when i fill up the truck with gas.

my only thought is that it's simply a matter of not caring and being lazy.

I keep a bunch of plastic bags for the same reason. I don't like litter in my cars, and I really hate it on the road side. It makes me feel like I am living in some third world failed state slum.

My kids let the burn pile of trash get too big and some blew away. I made them get every bit of trash for three square miles around my house. Lol, that made them mad since there's a major illegal alien corridor about a mile east of my property. It took them two full weekends to get the area clean to my satisfaction.

I am not an enviro-nut or anything, I just like to have things clean, tidy and organized. Life is more comfortable that way IMO.

Oh yes they do, I was just in Nassau a couple months ago. It was clean in the port where we stepped off the boat but as we walked through town to the beach and they had thier fair share of litter.
