I applaud Supervisor Charlotte Moore’s campaign against littering in Roanoke County (“Litterbugs beware in Roanoke County,” Sept. 28 news story), but feel the county first needs to get its house in order and lead by example before embarking on efforts countywide.
1. How about not driving county trash trucks with overloaded capacity on trash day? Many times I have followed a Roanoke County trash truck with trash flying out and littering our road.
2. One major concern is litter in Green Hill Park after any event. Trash throughout the field is not picked up. It gets mowed over and turned into pieces that make it hard for citizens like myself to clean up on days I cannot get to it before it is mowed over.
3. How about some of those bear trash cans in Green Hill Park? I have been looking at piles of trash that have not been picked up for more than a month. I assume bears have struck there, as in numerous parts of Glenvar. We Glenvar residents clean up when bears make a mess of our trash. How come Roanoke County doesn’t?
It is up to residents at every level to help clean up our county.
