A couple of times a week, I receive emails from people wanting to know what to do about people, neighbors and businesses that continually dis-respect their neighbors and the environment with the continual amount of trash they improperly dispose of.
These pictures were sent in by a concerned citizen, who over the years is angry at Identity Beauty Salon in Ashland, Kentucky. The citizen states the salon throws the trash in the street, does not use the dumpster. Aerosol cans, hair, shampoo bottles, food and paper are lying open in the street, blowing all over and worse yet attracting rats and other pests.
The problem is the dumpster guys don’t go pick up the trash, at least they don’t in my neighborhood. Their job is to empty dumpsters and might pick up the odd extra piece, but they will not go chasing the neighborhood picking up trash. So how long does this trash sit and collect diseases? Not only that it is inconsiderate to anyone, it smells bad! Nothing is worse than a bunch of rotting garbage.
The other kicker- Beauty Salons are known for the amount of toxic chemicals they use. When not disposed of properly, animals eat them, leakage goes into groundwater and humans and animals drink that ground water. It is pretty obvious here the salon does not care about the environment, that said they are most likely using toxic hair dyes that carry carcinogens, which cause cancer!
I want to thank concerned citizen for sending in the pictures, hopefully someone in Ashland, Kentucky will read this post, mention it to Identity Beauty Salon and maybe they will change their piggish ways and become more environmentally responsible, if not then show some respect for their neighborhood and the health of their patrons.
