No dumping


Wouldn't it be lovely if we lived in a society where everyone was kind, thoughtful and respected each other and our marvellous planet? Sadly, we seem ever further from that utopia. I was dismayed to see, on a recent local walk, the mess left by people dumping rubbish despite the large sign clearly prohibiting this. (Not even sure why a sign is needed... surely it's basic common sense not to dump rubbish by the side of the road or on someone's land.) Paint tins, plastic piping, plastic wrap, garden rubbish, wood panelling, boxes...  There is a Council tip and recycling plant not two miles away, free to residents but I guess trades people have to pay to use it.    
I despair...

  1. I agree, some people just don't seem to care. Shame.

  2. This sort of thing makes me so frustrated too. I cannot understand the mentality of these people.

  3. There's a quote that seems to apply to such people. The best sign of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe is that it's never tried to contact us.

  4. Outrageous! At least we must remember that this is only a minority of the world that is like that and most people wouldn't do this!
