Don't Mess With Texas
Littering is a problem at every level.
Household- Citizens' tax dollars have to be used in order to clean a lot of it up
Business Firms- It looks bad and can make a business look unappealing if it is on their property, keeping potential customers from seeking out their business.
Government- Has to spend tax dollars on programs to clean trash up instead of being able to use that money on programs that could help our economy.
Rest of the World- It is bad for the environment! Trash is already bad enough getting buried in landfills, now you have it directly affecting water sources, soil, and some animals that may eat it.
