Has anyone ever noticed the garbage on the streets? Have you ever been behind a vehicle whose occupants throw out the window, cigarette boxes, tissues, cans, (sometimes bottles), fast food bags, etc, etc.? We have a No LITTER ordinance, so why don't our POLICE enforce this? I mean no disrespect for our police, maybe they are not instructed to enforce this by their superiors. But it should be, for the better of the Town! Even pedestrians just drop their garbage on the sidewalks. I don't care what their house or apartment must look like, but I do care about what it makes the Town look like! This would be a win-win. Think about it, at a time when the Town could use revenues, (be it so small), it would bring in money and actually might stop someone from doing it again. What do you think? Should we try to deter litter or should we continue to live with a mess?

I totally agree with you! I happen to live across the street from the high school. I HAVE TO sweep everday to keep up with the litter. I see kids come back from lunch and just throw bags, bottles, wrappers whereever they are standing. I had friends visit me from another country and they could not believe the amount of garbage that gets thrown around outside. They joked about the plastic bags that get stuck in tree branches, wondering if Kearny trees grew plastic "flowers"! They also wanted to run out and buy stock in Clinton Ice Tea, seeing how many containers littered the sidewalks and curbs. I know it's not just by the high school, the whole town looks run down!
