Letter: Trash solution is simple

By John Diedrichs

Peter Chen made some excellent points in his opinion piece ("It's time to clean up our streets and reputation," May 4, page 8). However, before we start taking drastic measures like fining people for littering, let's start with something simple and obvious.

A far more effective first step would be to triple (at least) the number of public trash bins on the streets. On almost a daily basis, I find myself carrying some small bit of trash in my pocket for hundreds of meters before finding a place to properly dispose of it.

If you want clean streets, then make it easy for people to do the right thing.
