Word Prompt Trash Talk

” Everything we use comes in boxes, cartons, bins, the so-called packaging we love so much. The mountain of things we throw away are much greater than the things we use.” ― John Steinbeck.

Sunday (November 11th) was  Remembrance Day. Monday of that week was a federal holiday on which the day of remembrance was celebrated.

One tenant on that day felt the need to dump his trash not in a nearby collection bin but in the middle of a traffic lane used by many tenants in the immediate area. Besides, there was no one manning the rental office at the time. 

I did not know that this mess was there until I almost stumbled upon it myself on my way to the site’s outdoor mail box station.

Cars and trucks were driving over this carload box lid and its exposed contents without even slowing down. It was a cardboard box lid four feet by five feet by 4 inches deep.

To most drivers it represented an obstacle to be run over rather than removed.

I used the outdoor office phone and called for help in removing the trash.

The green collection bin at the top of the photo was empty and the plastic bags of garbage were also left outside .

Have you seen such acts of indifference near your own place of residence?

Tell us about it or share your own photos with Susan and myself here. — gc
