In that time, I've found that the types of trash I pick up from the roadside seems to go in trends. One year I found dozens of baggies of smoked cigarette butts. Another year there were empty whipped cream cans (the kind that projectile sprays out of the can) everywhere. One time I picked up probably a hundred of the little airline bottles of alcohol. All empty of course. And someone had an affinity for Red Dog beer one year in the early 2000s.
This year I found CDs. What, CDs? Yep, and I'm not sure why but I picked up dozens of them. Most of them like the one in the picture, recordable, not store bought. Who's "Her Majesty" anyway? I wanted to listen to it to find out but somehow misplaced the disc before I got back to my car to try it. And why was it on the roadside, along with a lot of others? Are CDs so outdated now that people just dispose of them by winging them out the window? Who knows but there were too many spread along about a two mile stretch, on both sides of the road, to be just one person's collection.
So, have you found anything good lately alongside the road?
