Trash of Highway 66

I realize the individuals who throw out trash on Highway 66 are to blame; however, why does our local government not hire crews to clean it up? Who is responsible for getting this done? We pay local taxes to have this done! Driving from Rogersville to Bulls Gap is now a disgusting trip (especially since the roads are also cluttered with worthless political signs).

I would rather my tax dollars go to something more productive than picking up trash. Education, jobs, police and general public safety rank as a few important notions.

If that trash bothers you that bad, pick it up. Organize a clean up day. One person can make a difference and that person can be you.

That's the problem with society as it stands today. The idea that another should take responsibility to clean the mess is fails us. Make a difference, be the difference and show a difference.

Unreal....Does anyone...speech police included, know of any anti litter signs or fines in the city or county? if we had they would be ignored by residents and enforcement because of idiots like you...have you ever traveled? this is one of the worse areas period....large cities in Canada like Toronto have less trash...we have a VAC truck..but seems restricted...look at areas on McKinney and colonial rd...broadway,,,,etc..stop signs are areas to dump your ashtrays, mt dew, beer, and mellow yellow bottles and fast food wraps........thank god for the vultures, crows that now come in for the road kill. now for all you grammer people....take you dangling what ever and shove it. may help clean up the sh....

It is about as bad in town. Lazy slobs can't wait till they get to where they are going and dispose of it like civilized human beings, no they would rather pitch it out the window to lay in the road or in somebody's yard for us decent folk to pick up. Imagine what the town would look like if not for the ones of us that do pick up after these bums that have no respect for anything.

your tax dollars are busy lining the pockets of the thieves in local governmaent. it will never be wasted on public services. your best hope is to convince them to use the pool of slave labor occupying the jail for that purpose.

I do pick it up and try to make a difference, but a 13 mile stretch is too much--unless you can get your sanctimonious ass down and help!

I am not the one bitching about it. Raise taxes and have that taken care of.

By the way, never once have I ever saw anyone on that highway picking up trash.

How about a little more doing and a lot less yapping.

TN folks hate out of staters but they appreciate the beauty of the area and take care of their property and don't litter roadways BC they respect the land. Its the locals that live like pigs and throw their kids dirty diapers and cigarette butts out at the lakes and road sides.

Bring back the trash pick up for the non-violent prisoners. I don't know why they would ever stop it to begin with! It is very embarassing how our roadsides are covered with trash and our roads are full of potholes and trenches. Why so many people come from out of town for Heritage Days and July 4th is beyond me because our town looks awful! Just look at Main Street..pitiful.By the way,who would you go and speak to about damage to your vehicle due to a huge hole in the road? This happened to my cousin RIGHT IN TOWN.,It cracked her front bumper.Why won't they fix them & let some inmates get some sun and fresh air like they used to do? It would be great for them and us.

The political signs are blocking the view of pulling out on main roads. They make it look trashy. People know who is running and for what, they know who they are gonna vote for already so why the signs??

"have SEEN". Looks as if you are the one doing the "yapping" instead of the "picking up"

Tennesse trash-The Indian is squalling now,not just shedding a tear..I had to say it! All the old-schooler's know what I am talkin about.But seriously, how hard is it to keep a wal-mart bag in your car and change it out when it's full or drop your fast food in the trash cans at McDonald's or at the car wash or the trash can at the gas pumps while you are already standing there pumping gas?
