Littering in Annandale - east
Date: August 15, 2018 02:55PM
I think time has come for authorities to enforce the laws against littering: Virginia spends about 5 million tax dollars annually; and nationally, the cost is 2.5 billion tax dollars a year for litter cleanup. In Annandale we have a major issue with uncivilized people (sorry to say especially illegals that loiters around stores entrances and day workers coming through) that believe it is OK to trash the local roads, parks, and neighbors wooded areas with small trash bags, food containers, tons of beer and water bottles, and whatever other trash they produce and disseminate around. Residents are TIRED of this. We pay taxes and respect the law; why should these people be above the law? Maybe it is OK wherever they come from to live this way, but it is not OK with us. Then they wonder why they get discriminated. I can tell you why: start behaving like a human beings and respect other people properties and rights and you may find that the stereotype of "loiters littering bunch" that circulate at night trashing the neighbor will stop applying to you. To the authorities: start implementing the penalties associated with littering and you may will see some improvements when these people instead of having disposal income to get drunk in our wooded areas and neighbors and using it as a trash site will have to use the money for bell or to pay the fines or get the hell out of this town.
