I love Tacoma, so I’m not a fan of people dumping garbage on the streets.
To all the dedicated folks who drive through my neighborhood at night to throw a myriad of garbage out of their cars onto the streets and lawns: Please stop.
Tacoma is equipped with public garbage cans all over the city as well as refuse disposal sites (city dump). Whether you’re walking, riding or driving, find a garbage can or wait until you have enough refuse for a dump run and take care of it.
Whatever you do, don’t dump your garbage on the street. It is a health hazard and illegal. And, most important, we can see you:
▪ The guy in a Suburban who throws Rolling Rock beer cans on the street and lawns.
▪ The woman in the new cream-colored Cadillac SUV, a regular, who throws out furniture pieces and garbage.
▪ The woman in the silver sedan who threw out dirty jeans and bags of garbage.
On and on.
If you want to conceal a drinking problem or an illicit affair, please do it without leaving a trail of garbage (and evidence) for residents to clean up.
