Meet The Guy Cleaning up Carleton Place– One Cart at a Time


achriss I whined this morning about the carts in the small gully beside Walmart on McNeely. Chris Wood who works for our local Walmart is going to be rescuing these carts so we can keep Carleton Place clean. It’s not up to Beckwith or Carleton Place, or anyone else. They have enough work to do without picking up our crap. Pick it up, and keep Carleton Place clean. Thanks Chris! A tip of the hat to you:) This Isn’t Oakland — What’s With the Litterbugs Carleton Place? Public Shaming!

Chris Wood just wrote this on Facebook–wise words

I’d also like to take a moment to ask Walmart shoppers to be courteous and help keep our home clean by throwing the garbage out of your cart & into the can before heading to your car. A lot of the pollution along McNeely comes from garbage blowing out of our shopping carts. I generally don’t have a problem with it- I’ll throw it out myself if I’m working, but I can honestly say I’m the only store standard who bothers to do so. Every little bit makes a difference!
