  1. there’s a special spot in hell deserved for people who litter. why do i have to live with crap that you don’t want anymore? take it to the dump.

  2. i have to agree. as innocuous as littering seems in the scope of the world’s problems, i think it’s the laziest, most anti-social eff you to your fellow man. “My trash, your problem.”

  3. Absolutely, littering is the worst, that and tagging. It’s not like it’s “Ooops, it just happened.” Nothing more than inexcusable, inconsiderate laziness.

  4. It’s illegal dumping like this that has made people anti-immigrant. It’s a part of their culture. It makes me sick when people drop cigarette butts on the street, too. In Japan, smokers carry a little case for putting their cigarette butts into, until they can find a trash can to throw them in. I’m sure I sound racist, but the point I’m making is that it is a cultural thing, something that is learned.

    I remember growing up and seeing those commercials with the owl, “Give a hoot, don’t pollute.” That slogan, which ran on American TV, has stayed with me all these years.
