MY ROAD TO BEING A PICKUP ARTIST-A TRASHY STORY ~ Dave Bianchi
Just this morning I headed out of my house armed with a flashlight since it was still dark outside when I started on my walk along with a plastic bag and my trusty pick up stick. Tuesdays are always a great day since it’s garbage day, so I have plenty of places to deposit the trash I find alongside the road and on the sidewalks or on the lawns that I pass by. It’s great exercise plus I help keep the neighborhood clean. I even do my own economic analysis, for example, among those folks who can’t seem to hang onto their trash until they find a proper receptacle, Marlboro cigarettes are the most popular brand. McDonald’s containers beat out Wendy’s and Jack-in-the-Box. The majority of the plastic bags that get hung up on most anything mostly come from Wal Mart. I don’t know what the brand of the bottled water containers are, but I’m always amazed that many still have water in them, sometimes even full. And what about the one glove, a pair of socks or a lonely shoe. Where’s the other shoe?
