Clean up, Surrey

I read with interest Ms. Berry’s letter concerning the state of litter in Surrey.

I pick up garbage from our streets daily (one garbage bag in a one-kilometre stretch) and our local park (one garbage bag every three days). In addition, there are the beer bottles and liquor bottles, pop bottles and cans and juice containers.

Community pride lacking

I too, am embarrassed by our (Surrey) community’s lack of pride!

After reading (letter) ‘Crack down on litterbugs’ I got angered as I had just come in from seeing all the trash that my neighbours refuse to pick up from their yards.

It should just be an ingrained action!

Just because the birds get into your bags because you can’t fine a cover or the garbage collector doesn’t pick up what they drop, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give a darn. We all pay good, hard earned money for our homes, apartments, etc.

Why not show a little pride in where you live and don’t hope it just blows into the neighbors yard.

Get motivated, Surrey!
