Pasta Pollution

Recommended Posts

A New Jersey town east of where I live suffered a dumping of five hundred pounds of uncooked pasta shapes, including macaroni, along a streambed.  The perpetrators have been identified, but not the motive.

It's a wonder that people can think there will be no repercussions for dumping garbage (pseudo-anonymously).

Oh it is a thing. LA Times today had a feature on trash dumping in Watts. The Watts Towers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watts_Towers are famously made of trash but the dumping is a real local burden. Dump fees are huge as we run out of space. Mornings were always a treat when we had a warehouse space in Compton, They see a dumpster (locked always) and dump alongside- mattresses, couches...  Some cities in the County require recycling certificate to show you recycled metals and such to close out a permiit. Not just pasta ;) Enforcement costs $$$
