W/A: Tubbs Hill Becoming Dump, Toilet

Walkabout: Those months also bring much less trash. The amount that gets left up on Tubbs is incredible. I picked up so much trash in the last few days I had to take a break. Glass bottles, cans, plastic bottles and cups, diapers, fish in plastic bags, blankets, towels, shoes, cigarette butts, shirts, and shorts, flip flops, and doggie poos. None is this much fun to clean up but I like how much better things look. I wish people would treat Tubbs like the special park that it is instead of a garbage dump and a toilet. A special thanks to the Parks Department who has to carry away all of this garbage!

Question: Have you noticed the trash that Walkabout’s talking about, when you’ve hiked Tubbs Hill this summer?
