A Buchanan area resident sent this picture of trash picked up near their home. For fear having more dumped on the family, the reader wanted to remain under the radar.
Here is what our Cleaner Buchanan resident had to say:
“My family and I moved to Buchanan last fall. Every couple of months we fill up trash bags of roadside trash. Once some one threw a glass bottle right at us almost hitting the kids. Another time we found a dog shot in the head in an old dog food bag. I have seen neighbors of ours also take the time to pick up trash thrown out by others.”
The reader enclosed a poem to the Litter Bugs:
“It’s simple, think twice next time
you a do a drive by dumping.
Together we can keep Buchanan beautiful.”
Perhaps the adults could learn something from the students at the locals schools–last year Buchanan Elementary recycled paper and plastic and even old Blue Jeans. Recycle and dispose of trash properly! It’s their future.
