We live on a gravel country road, 17 yrs ago, when we moved here my husband picked up a trash bag of trash every week along our road. It didn't take too long and the trash slowed down. It does seem that if they see it, they add to it, if none is seen, very little is tossed. Now we hardly get anything.

We live in a very tidy neighbor hood. The mower, leaf blowers etc. drive me bonkers, however, I always say I am happy they keep up the properties better that way.

How true laurielee. I feel it's that way with everything. I just wish more people would observe traffic laws - maybe that would be "catching" too.
