Let’s play a game.
What does a mattress, a couch and a recliner have in common? They can all be found sitting on the side of a road in Commerce.
I enjoy running along the back roads in Commerce, especially the roads around Rosemound Cemetery.
If you’ve ever been back there, or go through there on a regular basis, then you would see, like me, something new on the side of the road every day.
We’ve been reporting recently on the illegal dumping suit near FM 1570, just west of Greenville, and, although this has not threatened the lives of the surrounding people, it is an eye sore and is something that could be easily avoided if the people dumping this stuff weren’t so lazy.
There are so many more productive ways of getting rid of your old stuff than tossing them out on the side of the road.
Commerce Cares Recycling hosts recycling on the first Saturday each month at the City Wasterwater Treament Plant from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
I want Commerce to look better than it does. I recycle at my work and try be a good steward of the earth, which has been mandated by God.
It is discouraging when I see people who do not care about how the stupid things they do affect others around them.
Maybe the people dumping weren’t raised right, maybe they weren’t taught that the world isn’t your trash can, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s simple common sense to know what they are doing has negative effects on not only the environment, but also the wildlife around them.
Please, stop dumping your junk in our city.
Take care of what’s been given you.
