Graffito is Littering

If you see graffito on overpasses, train box containers, signs, brick walls or streets, this is considered littering because someone has defaced public property. During the Great American Clean Up, groups will be painting over many defaced spots.

Much of the graffito I’ve seen (not this to the left) show good artistic talent. I wish that the talent could be used to paint murals in unsightly areas of the city. The railroad overpass by the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere has nice murals painted on the columns. The murals depict some of the animals at the zoo. Thankfully, no one has tagged this artwork.

What Do You Do When You See Someone Litter?

Or What Would Jesus Do?

Here’s a Quick Poll from NY1 News, who asked their readers what did they do when they saw someone littering in the subway. I believe strongly that the results would hold true for anyone in the U.S. walking on the street, riding the bus or driving in their cars.

Once I was walking with an employee of the Nashville Zoo, who saw someone throw their guest map to the ground. The employee picked it up, walked up to the person who littered and said, “Here you dropped this.” That was so cool to do to a litterer.

Legal Sign or Litter

If I put a Hillary sign in my yard, it’s legally okay, but if I put a Hillary sign on a busy intersection on office park property, it’s littering unless the owner of the property permits it.

If you see a Hillary sign and a Dean sign together, it’s probably littering.  Just put the sign of your choice in your yard, vote and remove it after the election. Once the primaries are decided, PlanetTrash will endorse the greenest one.

I think the above rusty items are gas tanks from cars and maybe a refrigerator or coffin vault on the right. Anyway, it’s disgusting.
