Letter: Trashing of the Rail Trail
To the Editor:
I have enjoyed walking the rail trail between Mascoma and Mechanic streets. It allows one to walk away from the traffic.
Sadly, it’s becoming more like one very long dump. My guess is that it’s just one or a few individuals who have been dumping their beer, hard lemonade, tea and soda cans, along with coffee cups and cigarette wrappers on the trail. It is especially bad nearest the underpass, but the trash is scattered all along the trail. The litter is multiplying this spring. It can’t be missed when passing through.
The trail needs to be litter free for the enjoyment of anyone who wants to walk it.
