The preceding 7 pages of photos were taken in March, 2007. For your possible amusement, be sure to see the original article which contained about 120 photos of trash and litter taken in March 2006 which are shown on the homepage of PleaseDoNotLitter.com


Some businesses in West Virginia have had to remove their business signs, even though they were located on their own property. For details, you can read the article on www.LastOneOutTurnOffTheLights.com. But let's face it. Most business signs don't look half as bad as the trash and litter in Jackson County.

(he he ... laugh ... he he)
If the DOH has time to make businesses take down their business signs, then don't they have time to pick up the road trash?

Instead of wasting fuel driving around in those state vehicles, maybe someone needs to buy some trash bags.

Is the DOH so broke that it has to suddenly enforce the "Outdoor Advertising" law in an effort to get businesses to pay a sign permit fee to generate revenue?


The old tires in the creeks and all of the trash scattered along the highways should be a major "health concern". Mosquitos breed in standing water in old tires, and they can spread disease. There is so much shattered glass along the highway (the DOH pulverizes a lot of beer bottles when they mow), and a lot of the broken glass eventually makes it into our streams (dangerous for wading in a stream). If you have lead paint on your house, it might cost you a lot for cleanup and disposal. Funny, because on most cars and trucks there are wheel weights made of lead that get exposed to water every time it rains. The edges of our highways are probably "toxic", and they are dangerous with all of the broken glass. But trash and the consequences on water safety doesn't get much media attention in the newspapers, etc. If you look at what has gotten a lot of media attention lately, it has been with some Health Departments filing charges against businesses which continue to ignore the smoking ban. Instead of the Health Departments telling businesses what they can do in their business, maybe someone should ask them to go out and pick up the trash and old tires (because it is a health issue) and then perhaps businesses might want to locate in West Virginia. In my opinion, businesses in West Virginia don't need the DOH and the Health Departments telling them what they can do and what they can't do. After looking at all of the trash photos, it seems to me that someone has forgotten their other responsibilities. My guess is that for the amount of work that some of them do, those government checks and benefits must be pretty nice!
