Will It Ever Stop?

trash and truck box lid on Whipple Spur.Rd.
A quick trip on Revilla Road to check on the abandoned vehicle
left in the ditch two weeks ago revealed more trash dumped for
people to look at, with a couch dumped along one of the pull-outs.
In going North to check on a vehicle, I checked Whipple Spur
Road and found three computers, two monitors, two bags of trash,
a truck tool box, and two buckets that were dumped there.
One of the monitors had "Workstation 6,. Ethernet 126.96.36.199,
Router Console" on it. There were two IBM and a Compaq computer
tossed out. If someone remembered these and who they were given
or sold to, it would help to find out who dumped them. It is
to bad they aren't recycled as there is value in the materials
in them including gold.
Two vehicles have been dumped along Sunset Drive, a Subaru and
a Toyota. The interesting thing about the Toyota is that a notebook
was left behind and one of the notations read "Borough about
voucher for junk vehicle." It would have been nice it they
had followed up on it so your tax money didn't have to go to
remove their vehicle. It also poses a traffic hazard to the
people that drive on Sunset. I will be contacting the registered
owner who probably sold it without updating the registration.

I recently talked with someone who was taking their parents on
a hike along one of the local trails. Their comments were on
the amount of trash dropped along the trail, not the beauty of
the area. I don't know what it would take to wake people up
to the fact that they help destroy the things they enjoy by littering.
I was asked, "What are they thinking?", to which I
replied "I have no idea!" I don't know if they think
at all, other than about themselves.
So, the trash keeps getting dumped and you continue to pay to
have it cleaned up, and the dumpers have no respect for their
island, friends and neighbors and deserve none from us. Beauty
may be skin deep but that type of ugliness goes to the bone.
