It is not only road trash, but animals that are dumped! People drop kittens not even weaned or puppies. I don't know if they are under the delusion that they will be able to hunt for their meal or that they will wander up to a farm house, but most just hunker down where they are terrified at a strange place and starve to death. They get hit by cars or become coyote fodder. Occasionally, and idiot like myself will pick them up and take them home.

We had a neighbor that was given a Shetland pony that was mean and found he couldn't deal with her.... so he turned her loose to roam up and down the road. A call to the sheriff's office was a waste... we were told we could have the pony if we wanted it!! I didn't want it! I had chased it out of my yard numerous times!!!!

It is pretty clean where I live, but when the winter snow melts, there will be more visable trash.

Periodically, prisoners on work detail come through and remove it. Seems appropriate, since many were probably the ones who dropped it in the first place.

It's clean here actually very clean as they won't have that here not in the Berkshires they are always cleaning and people keep things tidy around their homes.

The snow here has melted (it will be back).

I see what is left of dead deer lying near most roads.

It does not bother me......the coyotes have to eat too.

Ours are pretty clean but then the highways in our area aren't exactly highly traveled
