On my bike rides I travel quite often on Townline, Downes Road, and Glenmore.
The garbage on the side of the roads is absolutely disgusting. It is not noticeable when driving by in a car.
The lazy litterbugs are bad enough, leaving fast food containers and wrappers, and also broken glass. We also have actual garbage dumpers.
They are the real scumbags.
When I see garbage bags dumped, I stop and lift them out of the ditch onto the road. It takes time but it eventually gets picked up. On Glenmore last week, I noticed a large amount of garbage dumped, including a big amount of cardboard. Wake up, scumbag. Cardboard is picked up every week with the recycling.
What to do: The city, I am sure, could do a better job cleaning up problem areas. Out of sight, out of mind for the politicians. They want more people moving in. I am sure there will be dirty filthy scumbags disguised as people included. The problem will only get worse.
