Has Bee County been invaded by litter-loving visitors from outer space? As my husband and I drive down the bypass each Sunday, it seems to us that three times the normal amount of litter is visible.
Recent mowing has exposed even the smallest pieces of trash. The drought and light freezes have exacerbated the problem by killing almost all of the green vegetation that usually hides some of the litter.
As Texans, we don’t mind seeing tumbleweeds caught in fences when the wind blows. Seeing trash caught in fences, however, is a shudder-producing eyesore. It’s enough to make a person want to move to a part of our beautiful country that has learned how to keep its roadways clean.
Who would want to move to such a trash-strewn community? What can be done to clean up our little corner of the world?
