I am amazed, unfortunately, by the litter around our community – especially in the area of East Colorado, Eisenhower and McKinley streets. I see the litter almost every other day while taking my walks during the afternoon.
Like the tourist ads promote, Fairfield is a great area to live. Each of us should take a moment to reflect on the paper cups, empty plastic bottles, scraps of paper and other trash lining the gutters outside our homes.
People may be more lazy and reliant on others to toss the trash for them, when minimal effort can make a sidewalk, store or walkway appear cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing. When visiting the community, we hope others feel that “we care” and the areas stay that way.
Because I care, I will make an effort to pick up trash on these streets and hope it makes a difference. Thank you to our community.
