Don't throw out your glass bottles in my yard

2012-06-17T23:00:00Z Don't throw out your glass bottles in my yard

I am a Hammond resident and have been for many years. A daily task of mine is to clean up crushed bottles from beer, juice and other glass bottles from my yard.

Well, if you are drinking beer while driving, you have a serious problem besides throwing the bottle out your window. It then smashes to smithereens that I have to clean up.

I know that you probably don’t have children running around or have responsibilities of your own, but I do! Keeping my yard clean and safe is my responsibility, and I do just that! I shouldn’t have to clean up glass where several neighboring children ride bikes, skateboard or play.

Keep your glass bottles in your own car and dispose of them on your own property. Just a thought! How about a trash can? You can find them everywhere!
