RE: Trash disposal - a different
April 23, 2004
Well, Ketchikan, I really like Gigi Pilcher's suggestion to create
the unique garbage cans she recommends, in bear, salmon and eagle
designs. Ketchikan could distinguish itself as the artistic and
creative town that it is, one which really cares about being
clean and inviting as well. I recall from a prior opinion posted
to this web site that there are no garbage cans along the bike
path, however, so Glenn's offer of cans is terrific. Attractive
cans painted up like animals can't help but encourage many people
to drop it in the can instead onto the ground. It would be a
very charming way to accomplish the goal, at least in part.
When I griped about bike path litter a few months back, I had
no idea how many other people were as fed up with roadside litter
and yard trash as I have been. I also was not aware of how many
locals are so passionate about cleaning up the town. What a wonderful
turn of events this is turning out to be!
As for those ignorant slobs who go to the trouble of hauling
their trash out to the ends of the road, then shoot or burn it,
I think some motion sensor cameras may be in order, as well as
getting license numbers whenever you can and reporting them to
the litter cops. Catch em, fine em, and take their money, then
buy more cameras, more garbage cans and give a bonus to officer
Cegelske for his great work. Thanks, Jerry!
Ketchikan is a great place to live and this entire discussion
about cleaning up the litter is yet another proof of that fact.
