To Stop Taking Litter So Lightly

“Knoxville needs an aggressive anti-litter campaign. There are many, both officials and volunteers, who clean up after those who throw their trash out of their car windows, and they do a great job. But look around. Do you see any anti-litter signs in Knoxville? I don’t. Do you hear city or county officials talking about this issue? I don’t.”

—Tim Totten, Knoxville resident

I just moved into my apartment on January 28, 2014, and I really like Knoxville; on my way to the library, about 25 minutes ago, I came upon the remains of a glass bottle on the street I was walking on. As I was removing the broken bottle and glass remains, all I could think was, "why do local authorities (in any city) not strictly enforce littering laws". I agree with Mr. Totten, "'Knoxville needs an aggressive anti-littering campaign'".
