Default More Litter Recently?

Has anyone else noticed the increase in litter by the sides of our major roads? This litter makes it hard for the landscaping crews to keep our roadsides cut and tidy.

It's disgusting to think that Villagers would throw their garbage on the roads. I see a lot of it including liquor bottles in the tunnels. Come on people, clean up your acts. Don't take the attitude that you pay for this service, so..... Our Villages are beautiful, lets keep it that way.

I also have noticed this, even before. Soda cans, beer cans in the shrubs on the golf cart path - styrofoam cups, too. It's a shame that some people just don't care.

Don't be too sure. Disposable diapers are probably one of the better selling items in The Villages.
