A lot, maybe most of them do pick up stuff but a) they get annoyed when
there is extra litter after stuff escapes when the trash men are pouring
stuff in the truck. Some people fill their trashbins loosely, and don't
use big trash bags
b) I have over 100 neighbors spreead over 6 or 7 blocks of streets. I'll
bet your n'hood is less dense, and when there is a crowd, people behave
differently. Worse. The same people behave better in smaller groups
but the bigger the crowd the worse they behave. That's how Jan 6 got so
many people to do such terrible stuff. Why Mr. Clark told us in the 9th
grade, Never be a part of a mob. 100 households mostly coming and going
at different times is nowhere near a mob but some feel no responsibiiity
because they didn't drop it, they're in a hurry in the morning and
tired or hungry in the evening.
BTW, more of it ends up in my yard, I think. I must be downwind, and
some is caught by the fence, or it goes over the fence which then stops
the wind from taking it farther. I find quite a bit in my yard and
lots of it under the evergreen bushes, between them and the fence. I
have to crawl on my knees 15 or 20 feet to get the stuff out, about
twice a year.
