The problem in the city regarding trash is the city residents themselves ("A better bag tax," June 12). I drive the Fulton/Monroe corridor every day, and if there's a pile of trash accumulating on the street, every day it just gets larger. Car occupants dump their ashtray or will drop a McDonald's bag out the car window onto the street.
What's lacking in a city is not a bag tax, its pride in your city.
