And still, 336/338 have trash strewn around the cans in the yard. AND have three recycle bins in the greenway. So hey DPI, thanks for doing nothing and letting everyone spend a weekend looking at a trash pit. I guess your and the landlords' comfort is more important than the basic experience of us lowly residents.

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
An unjust composition never fails to contain error and falsehood. Therefore an unjust connection of ideas is not derived from nature, but from the imperfect composition of man. Misconnection of ideas is the same as misjudging, and has no positive existence, being merely a creature of the imagination; but nature and truth are real and uniform; and the rational mind by reasoning, discerns the uniformity, and is thereby enabled to make a just composition of ideas, which will stand the test of truth. But the fantastical illuminations of the credulous and superstitious part of mankind, proceed from weakness, and as far as they take place in the world subvert the religion of REASON, NATURE and TRUTH.
