Trash in Ketchikan
February 27, 2004
Boy, do I agree with Officer Cegelske! Too bad he can't station
cameras in several key locations to catch even more litterbugs.
As I have already mentioned in a previous opinion here, there
must be a lot of folks in Ketchikan who could care less, have
absolutely no civic pride in our town, who love to see trash
on the streets, in the bike path, in the ditches, woods and trails
and dumped in all kinds of public places. In addition, there
are even a lot of homes with yards piled and littered
with trash! (Must be the same people)
I, for one, am tired of it. I pick it up and pick it up but more
continues to show up. Candy wrappers, junk food wrappers, empty
cigarette packs, pop and beer bottles, broken glass, take out
boxes, construction materials.....you name it and it's everywhere
you walk or drive.
I hope Officer Cegelske hands
out lots of tickets and I hope that the court enforces those
tickets because there is no excuse for this slovenly behavior.
It is pretty darn easy to go to the dump if you don't want to
pay for garbage pickup, or have a truckload to dispose of. The
attendant even gives my dog a cookie each time we go there. So,
come on, folks, let's clean up Ketchikan and cure this bad habit
of tossing trash everywhere but where it belongs.
