South Burlington VT. Clean City Alert - Lens on Litter

A picture is worth a thousand words. These SB clean city alert - Lens on Litter photos highlight opportunities to move from litter to glitter.

What do I believe?
People who care about clean neighborhoods must pick up for people who litter and don't care. Picking up litter must be done regularly. Green Up Day in Vermont is not just a one day a year event; it is a year round philosophy-as well as a call to action. 
Businesses are powerful role models for customers. Businesses maintaining clean, tidy and litter free premises have a positive influence on customer perception and behavior. ~The Moray

Our mission
As citizens, and as proprietors of this community, we have responsibilities. We can make a difference as communal volunteers. We can make South Burlington litter-free by exercising due diligence. 
·         Set an example for others by becoming regular litter cleaners.
·         Influence other residents in the neighborhood to join us.
·         Promote a greater sense of community among residents, property owners and businesses.
·         Urge city government officials to endorse our desires for a clean city by facilitating a Clean City image with a multi-faceted approach toward litter prevention and year round clean up.

Lets make South Burlington the signature image of a clean city.

Perhaps the city  might consider installing a trash and recyclable container here, given the bench, bus stop, and frequent trash accumulation.
