Peter Stanger says: July 17, 2017 at 9:58 am Plastics. They’re everywhere. Conveniently omitted from legislative overview, plastics from fast food joints are tossed onto our roadways, plastics from hard alcoholic beverages (with no CRV value), big gulp plastic cups, the list goes on. Here in Santa Cruz County, it is only a windy day or a brief storm away from being swept off the roadway and into the culverts and creeks that deposit this endless debris into the ocean. Where are our politicians? There’s not a minimal tax for “take-out” at fast food joints, there’s no CRV on big gulp cups or the “airplane serving size” little bottles of alcohol that are strewn on all our rural roads. Local politicians, our Board of Supervisors and City Councils could enact local taxes that could generate funding to have clean-up crews. There’s only lip service.
