Keeping it clean

Monday, May 23, 2011

Mindful of the traffic along Shadowlawn Avenue in Greencastle, Danielle Miller takes advantage of Community Clean-Up Day Saturday to provide a teaching moment for son Caleb Rollins, 7. Miller said her son has often asked aloud why people throw trash out their car windows, littering the landscape. Saturday he got to see firsthand the effects of that as he and his mother volunteered for the community clean-up and policed the area in the 300 block of Shadowlawn. [Order this photo]

Good for Caleb and the others who work to keep the city clean. Nice work.

It would be nice if our neighbors in the county would learn the same lessons. People toss trash out of their vehicles without any regard for what it does to the aesthetics and quality of the roadways. Indiana needs a beverage deposit law, it would keep much of this trash off the side of the roads.
