Park dumping

Hey you, the guy who dumped your bags of yard waste into Creekside Park

Hey you, the guy who dumped your bags of yard waste into Creekside Park. Oh, I get it. You’re likely the same guy who takes his dog into the dog park there and doesn’t pick up after him. Since I’m pretty sure your mother does not work for the parks department who do you think is going to pick up your garbage?

There is nobody employed by the parks department to pick up the garbage of thoughtless, selfish people. Whoever is finally tasked to do that must be taken from some other job and there is a cost to the taxpayer to do that.

Why should the rest of us pay to clean up after you, especially since the landfill is accepting yard waste? Pick up your own garbage.
