Thrown Out With The Dishwater!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Mike McCann - Broker, Mach1 Realty Farmland Broker-Auctioneer Serving Rural Nebraska

I have been roaming the county roads of Nebraska for over 40 years.  Last year I drove over 30,000 miles on the gravel roads.  I believe I have well over 500,000 miles on the roads. I thought I had seen it all.

Beautiful lands, incredible sunsets and sunrises, mother nature's bounty...and fury, man's monuments and debacles, fantastic farm steads and true hillbilly dumps, clean countryside and dirty, animals dumped by the road, thousands of wild animals, beautiful rivers, wild rivers, flooding rivers, dry rivers, wild fires, hail, tornadoes, lightening strikes, gully washers, wild buffalo, Bald eagles, and on and on. 

But rounding the corner yesterday I saw something I had never seen before and it made me sad...

Someone had thrown out their microwave into the road ditch...why is beyond me. It would have fit in almost any trash can.

Those of you who are old enough will remember the Keep America Beautiful campaign from the 1970's.  Here is the commercial...please take time to watch it:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7OHG7tHrNM   And then click back to this blog and leave your thoughts.

Perhaps it is time that we took a long hard look at littering laws and actually enforce them!!

None of us should have to drive down a road or a street or highway and see trash and discarded furniture...not in your state, province, or mine!

Until Next Time...

Thanks you for stopping by.  I just don't understand the mindset of people that do this.

It's puzzling that people will drive far out into the country to dump things, when most municipalities have dumpsters available for this type of refuse.

Let's foresee the possibilities . and get results!

Mike, I didn't even have to click the link to remember the campaign.  The newspapers in our area have been publishing the names of people who dump in our area - when they find out who they are.  Thank you for the reminder.

I think that would be great but...you have to catch them first.  Small rural town in  middle of the night most likely when they threw it out.

I am surprised how upset it made me but I guess i am just sick of seeing it...

Thanks for stopping by Rebecca!!
