Kudos to Park Staff: Trash Bags are Full Early

I know I complain a lot. Well, I don't think it's so often, but since those posts are usually the only ones that get feedback, it seems like I am more Harpy and less Freya (to mix my mythologies). So, here's an attempt to balance that out. On Monday (after a violent storm the night before), I walked through the park around 8 AM and noticed that the back half of the park was exceptionally cleaned up. Almost every trashcan had neatly tied bags next to it, and there was little garbage on the grass/walkways.

The trucks can't come by too often, of course, so the bags sat for a bit, but they were organized and neat and well-filled. Maybe we've all been conditioned to get warm fuzzies when what is supposed to be the norm actually occurs, but I was quite pleased.

So, well done Sunset Park Staff! We do appreciate a job well done, even if we don't thank you personally often enough.

I have a blog called LETS CLEAN SUNSET PARK, trying to raise awareness about littering and its effects. I love how you guys are helping the cause.
