I think there need to be new laws and allow law enforcement give out more tickets for littering and have the community take action on this. It is sad to notice huge piles of trash, tires, and other stuff just strung out where ever.
Where I lived that wasn't tolerated and littering warning signs were posted with violation fees. Something needs to be done and it needs to happen now. It is sad to know that people have to take time out of their daily life to pick up the laziness garbage of others. Alaska is a beautiful place and we all need to make an effort to keep it this way.
There needs to be more garbage cans at parks so people have somewhere to throw their trash. Also more signs need to be posted warning of littering and the repercussions. Otherwise silence is agreement.
Let's stop being silent and take more action on this problem. In Washington state, I would see the inmates go out in buses and pick up trash and also garden community businesses. It was a good way for inmates to be out but also help clean up the community at the same time. I don't see why more of that couldn't be done?
