Now that we are out of the house after months of self quarantining, it’s become clear that our neighborhood is dirty and needs some attention.
Welcome back, Street Cleaning! You’ve been missed!
Have you noticed the condition of the streets lately? Trash strewn about in the streets and on the sidewalks. Clumps of old dead leaves and dirt in clusters in the gutters and blocking catch basins. It’s disgusting. Pick up a broom and move things along! Set reminders on your phone to move your car on street cleaning days so we can have a clean block.
It’s great to see so many people using our parks and beaches. Know what’s not good? The litter left behind. Broken Twisted Tea bottles. Empty Bud Light 30-packs. Plastic water bottles. Dog poop bags. Fireworks debris.
We all need to do better at the beach. We need to pick up our trash and put it into trash barrels. If you are gonna be drinking like Country Fest, bring a trash bag and put your empties in it.
Same goes for parks. If there are no barrels at the park, bring your poop bag home and throw it in your own trash barrel.
Sweep the streets in front of your homes and businesses. If you see trash on the ground, pick it up and throw it away.
Let’s all be respectful and courteous to our neighbors and our neighborhood.
Let’s keep it clean, Dorchester!
