The "broken window theory" not only applies to the importance of keeping our homes maintained, it's applicable to keeping our neighborhoods clear of garbage. Once a little trash is tossed and neglected, more piles around it. This encourages vandalism. I think we must start with ourselves, setting an example for the neighborhood. Keeping our lawns clear. Next occasionally pick up trash in our surrounding areas. Going on a brisk morning walk while carrying a small plastic bag, wearing gloves or using a long reach grabber is a great workout which also beautifies your city!
