The trash really gets to me. There are waste removal trucks but they don't come to individual houses, they only collect the trash in the dumpsters. Those dumpsters are omnipresent, in every neighborhood, and you take your trash there and dump it in. Theoretically. In reality, people dump their trash in the general vicinity of the dumpsters, and those are the public minded ones. Others just leave their trash wherever they stand and go. So the garbage collectors come, and often or not, they only take the trash in the dumpsters, not the acres of trash strewn about.
Every once in a while, someone will lose their patience with this, and end it all by setting the trash on fire.
Right. All that plastic, all those chemicals, all that dirt, going up in flames and finding its way directly into my children's lungs. Delightful.
I'm glad I found an organization that is trying to do something about this. Kudos to them!
