  • I think a return deposit on all bottles would certainly help a lot. Most of what you see is soda and beer bottles and cans.

    My daughters and I walk along Wartrace Pike every month or so picking up cans and soda bottles for recycling at East Side school. In a 2-3 mile stretch we usually get 20 -30 every time.

    I am trying to teach my girls that you should not throw stuff out of cars and that we are being responsible citizens by picking up the mess from others.

  • You know Betty I must agree that TN. does have it's fair share of littering, but on a recent trip to Cleveland, Ohio I noticed how bad it was up there as compared to here.

    I also traveled to and through TX recently and noticed how clean their roadsides were...I am not sure, but I think the fines are heavier in TX. Of course they have a slogan , which is well advertised "Don't mess with Texas".

    Maybe the fines and enforcement should be greater in TN.
