Have you noticed more trash and litter on our streets and roads? Who is doing this?

Don’t we have enough sense, respect and pride in our county to not throw trash out of our vehicles?

Just look at the litter/trash along Md. 26 in Frederick city. As adults, can’t we be more responsible, and can’t we teach our children that it’s wrong and disrespectful to litter our roads and streets?

The responsibility is ours. Each one of us can and should do better. Think before throwing something out of your vehicle onto our roads and streets.

Have enough respect not to litter.

I understand that trash causes Global Warming. If so, don't people care enough about Global Warming to pickup their trash so they don't have Global Warming?


They used to say in Texas the difference between "red necks" and "good old boys" was that they tossed their empty bottles in the ditch and not in the road. Pick the group you like the best.


Look at Rt 26, the road in front of Walmart, Trash


Stop tossing your butts out also. How many times I see them fly out of cars...spark all over the place and then land in dry grass still smoldering. That's not just pollution, but a serious fire risk. Even had them come in an open window still sparking and hit/stick in my car grille. Come on...use your blinkin' ashtray or knock it the H off.


Russ- 100% agree. Sorry to inform you it’s going to get worse with the limitless development your county leaders continue to approve. Take a stroll though MoCo, Frederick county is now no different
