BUTT FIENDS litter rant and good eggs shout out Dan Leaman Landscaping

Cat Ryan submits-

Cigarette butts are right up there as the most common and yucky litter. Gloucester offers a quick ride right into our ocean waters. We were required to clean our sidewalk daily in front of our business or be fined.  Some smokers would flick one right in the midst of our dustpan and broom without missing a step.

Smoker trash is just an unfailing source of __________. You fill in the blank. There’s a big blind spot.

Business owners, employees, property owners, tenants: a lot of what we pick up downtown are piles of the same cigarette brand. Case in point:

Award for BUTT FIEND on Parsons goes to a proud Parliament smoker. Residents including kids are out here with gloves picking up your butts. We’re not talking the random passerby flick. We’re talking regular and routine breaks where you just sit there dropping.

Big shout out to Dan Leaman and Mike Carter today with Dan Leaman Landscaping. Thank you for coming back again to help with Parsons Street.

In life, look for the helpers. Donna Ardizzoni, Patty Amaral, and many volunteers  –See Donna’s post for this Saturday’s clean up
