For the past five or six years we have been picking up trash year-round in the Shining Sea Bikeway parking lot in North Falmouth. We are used to finding nips, beer cans, chewing tobacco tins, paper cups and like items.
On Sunday (Groundhog Day and Super Bowl Sunday) we went by the parking lot a little before noon and found a large amount of trash in one location.
There is a trash barrel (that some folks like to use for their household trash) located in the parking lot year-round. It is emptied on a near-daily basis.
If people want to use the parking lot as a drinking place, they should feel free to do so but throw their empties into the trash barrel! The same holds true for anyone using the parking lot for take-out food. Use the trash barrel!
The Shining Sea Bikeway attracts visitors from all over. Let’s keep it looking good so that our out-of-town guests will come back.
