The litter at the CVS/Dunkin Donut plaza in Gloucester City, NJ is a prime example of the problem posed by people who don't care about the appearance of our City. They lack Community Pride. If the owners of those two corporate giants would just spend a few dollars on trash cans it would be a giant step in helping to curb the litter locally. Furthermore, while we all enjoy going outdoors these days it doesn’t take much for people to dispose of their litter in their own homes, even while some may choose to visit an online casino nj be it at the plaza or at home.

The Southwest Globe Times a Philadelphia bi-weekly newspaper released an article on June 14, 2021 about the trash problem in the City of Philadelphia. The article points out several things the public can do to help stem littering in Philadelphia. The tips are not only pertinent to Philadelphia residents but to everyone no matter where you live.
From the article
All over the city of Philadelphia, there is litter flooding the streets. The City has put some initiatives in place to try and beautify the neighborhoods like the Litter Index in 2018. This app allows those on the street to survey the streets, vacant lots, park and recreation sites, riverways, and more public spaces they pass and give it a rating: 1-4, 1 being the cleanest and 4 being the most littered.
However, trash is still filling our streets and floating into our rivers and other waterways. Philadelphia hads a combined sewer system which means both sewage and stormwater go through it. Trash ends up in the Delaware and Schuylkill River, some of our main water sources.
There are some simple tips that can help prevent more litter in our neighborhoods:
When taking out the trash, make sure there is no trash at the top that could easily fly away like newspapers or cans and bottles. If you have a lid, securely place it on the trash can.
