We can easily solve litter problem in Modesto

July 9, 2013 

I walked outside the other day to take out the trash and I ended up stepping on a few carelessly misplaced wrappers. I'm sure many people have had this or something similar happen to them.

People are becoming careless with their garbage and litter, and it is affecting not only them but also many of the people around them. Litter is becoming a big problem.

Animals can eat it and get sick, and small children might even do the same. Litter is a problem for everyone, and it is easily fixed.

Trash cans are located all around. It is easy to put the trash in the designated area and it is healthier for everyone. Our city would look much nicer and be clean, a definite plus.
