Let’s get tidy in Harbour Grace
As Snook might say, “Ah, right on!” to the editorial by Andrew Robinson in the March 15 edition of The Compass, headlined “ Time to tidy.”
Don’t wait. Clean up now. If everyone could be responsible for the areas around their own homes and businesses, this would help tremendously. I’ve been picking up trash on my walks now for many years. It’s unbelievable at times the amount that gets dropped and then blown around.
Most of it consists of paper cups, ciga- rette packages, candy and gum wrapper, and sometimes whole bags of used takeout containers are just discarded on the streets.
Come on folks? Let’s make our town a worthwhile competitor for the Tidy Town awards for 2011. You know what they say: cleanliness is next to Godliness; along with our community pride. Joy French-Coleman
