Submitted: Trash

Submitted: Hi, I don’t know if this matters to you. I know the majority of people In Lakewood see your posts.

This morning I went for a walk to the Lake Carasalio and I saw all this trash in the water. I hope you can post about not litter in the parks or lakes. All the trash the people don’t put in the trash cans are contaminating the water and can affect the animals.

We have to take care and respect our planet.

I hope people can see posts like this and can be more considerate and conscious.

Thank you!

  1. The writer of this letter is absolutely correct. However, I would like to point out that there are not enough trash cans along the lake. I have notified public works about this problem. Many times, especially after a spring or summer weekend, I notice that the trash cans along the lake are overflowing and there is garbage on the ground nearby. If there is no room in a trash can, or if there is no trash can nearby, it is definitely an individual’s responsibility to take his trash with him. However, if the township would provide more trash cans, some of those lazy individuals who don’t take their trash with them, would probably dispose of their trash properly. But I want to stress again that the letter writer is correct and people should be more careful to keep this beautiful resource clean and neat for everyone.

  2. To give the people the benefit of the doubt, on garbage , many times strong winds come by and throw over garbage cans. That litter then travels and makes its way to the sea. Most people , really don’t litter.

    • I agree. Many times one can be holding something and it will fly away faster then you can run grab it! I highly doubt most of the garbage is from people intentionally dumping it on the ground.

  3. Great post. What I notice is that many people overfill their township issued garbage/recycling cans and a slight wind or a hungry squirrel can make trash go all over. Break down your cardboard and if you still need additional cans call the DPW.

  4. Years ago, the township had a committee that cleaned the entire lake. It was great to see the residents get together to help make their town beautiful. Maybe someone can organize something similar?
