It does bother me big time, I do pick up...but I also need to wear plastic gloves.
I don't understand it!

What right people think they should leave their rubbish?
It has always been a pet-pea with me, and I think it will always be one that drives me CrAzY.


Ahhh! feel so much better, rant-rant-rant.....

Always and yes. *insert angry face here*

Yes it does, and if I'm on a beach or in a national park I will pick it up and take it home with me to throw out. If it's just in the street I am likely to leave it where it is though.
I do not like litter, and I think litterers are very selfish to blight the countryside with their rubbish, simply because they couldn't be bothered to take it home or look for a rubbish bin. It looks awful !! I would not ever pick it up, as who knows if there are any used syringes hiding in or around it. Some rubbish could also carry diseases, and I am not interested in getting sick for the sake of beautifying the environment. On Clean Up Australia Day, volunteers wear protective clothing and masks to protect against hazardous waste and germs that could be lurking on the objects. I did this one year, as a volunteer. Also, they are issued with a special pick- up stick or strong gloves, so they are not cut, hurt, or infected by the rubbish.
It is beyond comprehension, isn't it? I will never be able to grasp the logic of their thinking. Who goes to places and just hurls stuff out all over the place?! Beggars belief. Pathetic beings they are that care so little for others, the planet and the creatures their *crap* could be killing :((

I hate litter! And I don't understand the people who do it. We find even drug paraphernalia at our local playground. Inconsiderate kids.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!!! Unbelievable. What utter pigs.
by Rice
I know! I know! I know! I wish there was something we could do. They've even burnt down one of the bins. >:(

It bothers me a lot. I sometimes pick it up if it looks safe to do so and I have a bag to carry it in.
An empty 2litre plastic bottle filled with wee I saw in my gutter.
DIDN'T pick it up.

I won't pick up in this day & age, as you've no idea what could be on/in it!

I just phone Council, & let them collect, as they've all the safety equipment needed to do so!
Lazy, good-for-nothin' varmints, as my mother-in-law would say.
by Vee
Yes. Vee, I'd actually say something a lot t worse about them than that!
by donjo
Yes, litter is a problem and it would be good to see schools do a half a day picking up rubbish, thereby teaching children to pick rubbish up (perhaps even some that they may have littered themselves).
Same with the unemployed - get them to pick up litter.

Great idea! And the people who have to do 100 hours or so of 'Community Service'. Why aren't they out & about picking up rubbish?
by Miro
At home yes but out and about very rarely.
Me too! Though I do have a mind to go out with a bag and gloves and give the local park a once over. That place is such a sty sometimes.
by Vee
Yes, it bothers me but I have a problem bending that low, so I rarely would pick it up unless it is broken glass.
by Finy
I hate it, i hate it I hate it! i always pick it up on my 3k walk around where I live, & put it in the approbate bins on my way home, but i can't make my self pick it up anywhere where else, as much as I would like too.
