At least once a week, I pick up trash along the roadside in front of my home along Mountain View Road and Dogwood Circle. A good part of the roadsides along Mountain View Road, Dogwood and Old Oakwood Road look like a trash dump.

I know some trash or litter cannot be picked up by residents as it can along the roadside near our residence. However, I think our county and cities should have enough pride in how the roadsides look to provide a crew to pick up litter and trash thrown out by unconcerned people before the whole county looks like a trash dump.
