Cleanups require everyone’s efforts

June 27, 2014 

I applaud Sheriff Rick Ramsay’s efforts to clean up the Keys, especially his personal involvement in this volunteer effort. 

I was appalled recently to witness a recycling truck spewing paper and cardboard litter all over U.S.1 while carrying its load up to the landfill. It is bad enough to witness tourists and residents willfully discarding trash, but to see a vehicle designated to professionally handle trash collection so flagrantly spoil our community character has raised my ire. 

This incidence was witnessed Friday, June 20, at approximately 9 a.m. in the northbound lanes of U.S. 1 adjacent to the Pink Plaza in Key Largo.

I encourage you to keep up your efforts in your clean up campaign.
