Dumping garbage

It is unfortunate that a small percentage of the population is so inconsiderate and or lazy as to dump their garbage on public property

It is unfortunate that a small percentage of the population is so inconsiderate and or lazy as to dump their garbage on public property and leave the burden to other people to clean up.

The landfill site would have only charged a small amount for you to properly dispose of your unwanted things, or maybe the Salvation Army would have taken them.

So for the man and woman, who, in a black and white pickup, dumped your old furniture in the boulevard on 25th Avenue behind my shop and just drove away. Maybe you should come and get your (stuff)

It would be nice if we could all be a little more considerate to one another.
