“Don’t Dump Your Garbage on Our Country Road”

by Steve Ray on November 22, 2018

Janet and I walk 2 to 4 miles every day that we are home. We like to say that it is our medicine but it’s always a lovely time together.

0385996E-E8B4-44D6-8623-E55C585BD5A9Last week while walking, we noticed someone had dumped a whole truck full of junk on our street — a broken TV, old furniture, etc. I looked through it and sure enough I found the creep’s address among the trash.

FCBCC146-3EB9-49B3-B071-7A953D6D2E4B After taking pictures of the mess they have made on our country road, I sent them a letter. I told them what they did was not only illegal but also rude and very inconsiderate. In the letter I sent pictures of what they had dumped and the box with their address on it.

Included in my letter was a warning to pick up their trash within 48 hours or I would take all the information, the pictures and their address to the sheriff.

We went out for our normal walk again yesterday and found the trash had been re-collected and the area on our road cleaned up.

Too often we turn a blind eye to such things, but not me. I believe in the biblical concept of right and wrong and justice. It’s a good idea that we hold people accountable for their inconsiderate and illegal actions.
