If I had to change one thing about where I live it would have to be the amount of trash I see while walking around my neighborhood. Its disgusting, its all over the side of the roads and the grass. People need to learn to pick up after themselves and not throw trash on the floor it makes our neighborhood look trashy and gross. My solution to the change would be is putting trash cans around the community. So that way people don't have to throw their trash on the ground.
