English Drive New Haven, Connecticut
I think It's been two whole days since I picked up the litter from the parking lot at the entrance of East Rock Park to the parking lot beside the Solders and Sailors Monument atop East Rock Park and one LARGE BULGING BAG of garbage had been thrown, dropped, dumped along the road and in the vegetation beside the road in that short time. Of course it's a criminal act, given that littering is against the law. And so I ask the City of New Haven, how many tickets/citations/written warnings have you given out in the past year for littering and trash dumping?
I'd guess few to none. Please prove me wrong.
There seems to be no heart in New Haven to make the difficult choices required to keep the city clean and free of trash.
It's an embarrassment to have friends from out of town see the Green and East Rock, strewn with 16 oz. beer cans in paper bags, broken beer bottles, tiny liquor bottles, hundreds of insulated cigar foil packs, Dunkin' Donuts bags, boxes, cups, wrappers.
Furthermore, there is STILL NO GARBAGE BIN ATOP EAST ROCK AT THE PARKING LOT and it's been 3-5 days since there's been none.
I appear to be getting nowhere with the city and the nasty littering citizens, but I'm going to keep picking it up the trash and showing it off.
So disgraceful. So unnecessary. So discouraging to think that many of these trash-tossing pigs are raising children who see an example and are being conditioned to follow it.
