Pick up after yourselves

As a foreign visitor to your beautiful city of Spokane, I have been distressed on recent trips by the increase of rubbish in your parks. People are discarding fast-food containers, fizzy drink bottles and even actual food. This is especially true in the eating areas and around the benches after a baseball game. Chicken bones can kill dogs!

It takes only a moment to find the nearest dustbin. Failing that, carry your leftovers with you until they can be safely disposed of elsewhere. Not only will you be making the environment safer and more pleasant to look at, but there is a feeling of satisfaction that comes with taking care of mundane maintenance issues.
