Can someone please recycle the plastic bag that is 25 feet up the elm tree in my front yard? Its flapping in the incessant spring winds has been driving me nuts for a week.

It's not worth 1-cent to climb that rickety old tree.

I don't think we should ban them, but since they end up being a pox on our landscape, we should get serious about littering. Like I get to punch you square in the jaw for dropping crap. I'd like to start with the people who think it is cool to go through the McDonalds drive-thru, park in front of my house to eat it, then leave the bag, wrappers, and cups on my shrubberies.

+1 on the littering! I live in a quiet neighborhood in Paradise Hills. 1/2 block from the Golf Course Club House. Very little traffic except for the moms pushing the kiddos around the neighborhood in their strollers. Some dumb *&# decided to dump his cigarette tray on the street in front of my house. Really? I live 8+ houses from the nearest stopping point and some dumb *&# just dumps the butts on the street?!?! I like a smoke now and then. I would never just dump or flick a cig outside. Damn littering aholes! I would have loved to catch that piece of you know what doing that.

States that have placed bounties on litter have successfuly seen it reduced.

If the bounty on a particular item ( ie. McDonald's hamburger wrapper )
is too low and they are still appearing in the shrubberies ( Ni! Ni! ... )
then increase the bounty to the disappearing point.

Aluminum cans are 1-cent and that appears to be enough.
Glass bottles need to be more since after they are broken ...
Cigarette butts might need to be 1-cent -- EACH.

Why would I do that?

I don't understand the question.

I don't smoke. I don't litter either.

I used to gather aluminum cans and sell them, but now, I clean, crunch and bag them and give them to street people - trying to make a buck.

P.S. It's not necessary to quote my entire ( multi-line ) post when you are posting directly below it.
