Remember all that great news about property values continuing to rise in North Winton Village? Well, according to a report by the Keep America Beautiful organization, the presence of litter can cause a 7 percent decrease in those very values. This D&C editorial, “Litter Season is Upon Us,” is a timely reminder of how you can help keep our neighborhood beautiful now that the trash that’s been hiding beneath the snow pack has bloomed like little putrid plastic petunias.
Beyond helping pick up around your home and when you’re on a walk, consider joining the city’s Clean Sweep at Frontier Field, Saturday, May 6 starting at 8:00. Every piece of trash you pick up helps make our city a better place to live.
