Thanks to MODOT workers, M291/I470 in Lee’s Summit is looking so much better. The trash pickers have been working this stretch of highway for the last week or two. I just wish they could pick up more often.
Our neighborhood participates in the Adopt-A-Highway program twice a year. In addition, I pick up trash along our outer road whenever I can. I cannot believe the amount of fast food trash, beverage containers (glass, cans and plastic) and plastic shopping bags. Perhaps a tax could be added to these items to help pay for their removal.
I am curious about two things: Don’t parents and schools teach kids not to litter anymore? And why do people toss their trash out onto our roads? Please, I would like to hear from actual litterbugs.
