Rub­bish

Auckland City Harbour News - - Letters - J CLARK Mt Eden

I live on a street be­tween Mt Eden vil­lage and Do­min­ion Rd. Frankly I think the bot­tom of our street is an ab­so­lute pigsty, es­pe­cially out­side the ASB call cen­tre.

The verges are thick with plas­tic bags, old mail­ers and bot­tles. Peo­ple seem to think the bushes on the side of the road are rub­bish bins. The plant­ing on the speed bumps are also treated with dis­re­gard.

As for Do­min­ion Rd, it’s a dis­grace. There are al­ways piles of boxes over­flow­ing with rub­bish and the usual lit­ter ev­ery­where. And the small park op­po­site Metropoli­tan Rentals is a hang­out for the home­less who drink al­co­hol and then toss their rub­bish on to the grass.

When did New Zealan­ders be­come such ig­no­rant slobs? I can’t un­der­stand the men­tal­ity of any­one who thinks it’s ac­cept­able to throw their rub­bish any­where.

I am also dis­ap­pointed that lo­cal au­thor­i­ties take so lit­tle care to deal with lit­ter and graf­fiti.
