So, here’s the tea: If you’ve recently been to one of our local Dollar General stores, you’ve probably spotted more than just some great deals. Yup, I’m talking about the growing trash problem in the parking lots and around the store.
Wait, What’s Going On?
Now, don’t get me wrong – Dollar General has been a game-changer for many of us, with its affordable goodies and that feeling of “I didn’t know I needed this, but now I totally do!” But with the increasing number of these stores popping up, according to a piece from Retail Dive, there’s been a downside. And that’s the mounting pile of trash—bags, receipts, the odd candy wrapper or two—that’s tarnishing the charm of our shopping experience.
The Parish Council to the Rescue!
Our Parish Council, bless their hearts, have been getting an earful from concerned folks like us about this trash trouble. And guess what? They’re stepping up! They’re diving deep into the issue, trying to figure out ways to keep our community spaces spick and span.
I stumbled upon this interesting bit on The National Association of Counties. It seems local councils and bodies like ours do have a say in how commercial spots like Dollar General should keep their surroundings. So, hats off to our council for taking the initiative!
What’s on the Cards?
So, what’s brewing? For starters, the Parish Council is thinking about popping in a few more trash bins around the stores. Simple, right? But oh-so-effective! Plus, if they can shake hands with local waste management teams, it might just keep those parking lots looking sharp.
Also, how about this? A store campaign with the catchy tag “Shop Responsibly, Dispose Responsibly.” I’d totally be on board with that, wouldn’t you?
