As more Wilton residents are taking walks in their neighborhoods, some may have notice trash along the side of the roads. First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice says this is an ongoing issue in town, but notes that the Health Director advises now is not the time to be picking up other people’s discarded trash. The safer alternative is to wait. In a normal year, Wilton would be holding the Annual townwide Cleanup at the end of April. This year, town officials hope to be able to hold the event in the late fall. Residents often suggest the best deterrent to littering is for the police to ticket. But Vanderslice says for a police officer to ticket a resident, they have to actually see the act of littering. With 3 patrol officers and one sergeant answering 9-1-1 calls and patrolling 127 miles of town owned roads, more than 80 private roads, Route 7 and the other state-owned roads, they can’t be everywhere at once. The best solution is for everyone to commit to not litter.
