Letter: Why Have People Gotten So Trashy?

(Thoughts? Have your letter to the editor published here!)

Letter to the Editor:

Dear Editor,

I want to talk about something that’s been bothering me lately – why are people being so careless with their trash in Belleview? They are just downright trashy, making our community look like a third-world country. I encourage everyone to take a drive around the dirt roads of Belleview Heights Estates and explore the many undeveloped lots that have become personal dumping grounds.

That’s right – instead of taking their old junk to the local waste center on 110th Street, they’re just dumping it in vacant lots. It’s not like the dump is that far away; it’s just a short drive from here. To be precise, the dump is only about 5 miles away and they obviously already have their trash loaded up! How much extra effort does it take to just haul it to the proper place? Where, by the way, furniture disposal is totally free, so they aren’t saving any money by being disgusting pigs.

I don’t understand why it’s so hard for folks to take their garbage to the proper place. It’s not like it’s a huge hassle, right?

This whole situation is not only ugly to look at, but it’s also bad for the environment and our health. Dumping trash in vacant lots messes up the soil, attracts pests, and makes our neighborhood look like a total dump itself.

What is truly wild to observe are the rampant building of new houses by builders in certain lots that neighbor these dumping site lots. These houses will surely be listed at $300,000 and be located right next door to a dumping ground. And people will be lining up to buy them – what a bizarre time to be alive!

We need to step up and take care of our community. Let’s keep our streets clean and show some respect for where we live.

    I agree 100%. I’m sure the ones doing the dumping don’t live in the area, they wouldn want to look at it. No one wants to take the extra to take it to the dump. We have gotten so lazy and we need to report the ones doing it. I know someone has seen it happen. We need to respect our city and speak up!
