Garbage littered streets tarnishes region’s beauty

Is it just me or is there really an ever increasing amount of trash tossed all over the place?

Is it just me or is there really an ever increasing amount of trash tossed all over the place?

When I walk on the roads near my home on Saanich Road, I see fast food containers, household goods, plastic bags, garden waste and shopping carts all over.

Downtown also seems to have litter everywhere. If it wasn’t for the DVBA street cleaners and the Victoria road cleaner, we’d be knee-deep in trash.

We have a beautiful city, let’s not spoil it. Let’s not rely on others to clean up after us. At least that’s what I was taught.
