Signs, Signs: No Trash



Stephens Lake Park (Columbia, MO)

One might wonder about the purpose of a trash receptacle with a sign requesting no trash be deposited. The photo below explains.




On subsequent visits to Stephens Lake Park, the Dog Waste Station was gone. Perhaps the lack of compliance had something to do with its removal.


Join the fun by posting your favorite signs.  Share the link by visiting signs, signs.  (Thanks to Lesley of Southern Ontario, discovered for hosting this weekly meme.)

Ah-ha! We have a similar problem at our church -- not dog waste, of course --- but folks putting trash into our "clean paper - cans - plastic" recycle bins, despite requests not to do so.

And they even said please. At least they did not throw it on the floor.

Hi Marvin, I stumbled on your blog from Pat at Remembrances of... I live in Hot Springs so I'm a fellow Arkansan. I love your sign. My sister lives in Jefferson City and works in Columbia so I've been there often. I enjoyed browsing back through your other posts. I'm a quilter so that's mostly what I write about but I'm always interested in seeing and reading other Arkansans. blessings, marlene
