It's Lawn Cleanup Time

This weekend the sound of lawn mowers being fired up have filled the air.  In some cases obscenities have filled the air as lawnmowers and weed whackers have not started. 

The town has a clean up day this month.   For the Delaware Side of town it is Wednesday and Thursday April 10th and 11th.  For the Maryland side of town it is Tuesday and Wednesday April 16 and 17th.  As usual they have a whole list of don't and won't take items and you have to call town hall and schedule the pickup.  Check out the Spring newsletter here http://www.townofdelmar.us/index.cfm?ref=50028
for additional information.

I have written a number of times about how little the town does for clean up days.  The town employees hate it so maybe that is the reason so few occur.  When I first moved here there was a clean up once a month.  Now it is once a year.  Combined with Shithead Governor Markel deciding to not allow grass trimmings and leaves in the landfills, the town and the state by reducing service for more taxes has given us a hidden tax.  Now we have to pay extra to remove those items.  Altho I hate to see people dumping crap in the roadside ditches I would have no qualms about doing so with grass trimmings and leaves.  Another example of laws that turn honest citizens into criminals.
