As one of the folks who participated in the spring cleanup, I'm dismayed to see how quickly the trash is reappearing along the bike path on the loop road. Rather than simply whining about it, I have a suggestion.
Let's put trash containers (like we have downtown) every half-mile or so along the bike paths and especially at the bus stops. Certainly not every one will use them but there are daily walkers, like me, who, as we go along, would be glad to pick up debris if we had a place to put it. Besides, haven't we been debating about what to use tour passenger fees for? It seems to me that an approach that keeps our community clean and appealing to hundreds of tour bus passengers who travel the loop road daily falls into a legitimate category.
