Letter to the editor: Sumter's litter-filled roadways are disgusting


Am I the only one who has noticed that the roadways of Sumter County are disgusting? There is an abundance of litter and trash on the sides of the roads, particularly Pinewood Road. Sadly, no one seems interested in solving this problem. I have complained and complained to the county and gotten minimal results.

I am a lifelong resident of Sumter County and I love my home, but I don't recall our community looking this bad until recently. Where is the pride we should show in our hometown? People visiting Sumter are surely shocked by the debris and trash they can't help but see. It's an embarrassment to each and every one of us. C'mon, Sumter, let's have some pride and clean it up.
