Today my partner and I went for a drive in the town of Ajax and we are just disgusted in the litter we see everywhere. I'm not even talking about wrappers and bags and the normal litter that we try to combat everyday but intentional, deliberate litter for the sake of being seen. Plastic baggie signs littered by companies on every corner to promote business. It's a way of getting next to free advertising. It's a bylaw violation and a real embarrassment for the company that litters the signs all over town (or at least it should be). I mean we do have bench signs, bus stop ads and billboards if you want your logo out on the streets. Besides that, we have Search Engines, Canpages, Goldbook, YellowPages and local community publications. I'm sure I'm missing other mediums but you get the point. Please do something about it. Call the company and complain or call your town's bylaw. Let's keep the lawn signs on lawns where the work was performed. That way we can see the work the advertising company did and the homeowner can choose when to dispose of the ad. Most importantly, we can keep the town beautiful and free of plastic garbage signs. This is a call to action by anyone in the community that cares.
