I work with two NP groups that do AAH and have done my time with the orange bags

What upsets me is driving on 40 or 64 behind a garbage truck (more like an 18 wheeler garbage hauler) that has trash flying out of the top of it. Simply because they chose not to roll the screen (it had one) over the top of the trailer.

Yesterday, I was behind one on the way to Durham, and watched a load of cr&p flying out of the top of a trash hauler, and while the Highway Patrol car went by me at 10 MPH faster than the 10 over I was going, HE DID NOTHING. The Police do not care, so the citizens do not care.

Then to see a car full of [mod]language[/mod] dump a whole flipping trash bag out the back window of their car on Leesville Road.

Seaoblin, you're not the only one frustrated with the litter situation.

If you do see a car littering you can report the little buggars at:
NCDOT Roadside Environmental Unit

Thanks for doning the orange vests and making a difference.
Again, this thread isn't about pointing fingers - WE ALL KNOW THERE IS A PROBLEM.
Keep up the good work friend.

I wonder what plans the city/county/state have for picking up litter, especially along the beltline. Looks worse than I ever remember.
