Resident unhappy with The State newspaper

As I drive through my neighborhood in north Camden and other areas around the city, I find plastic bags with The State newspaper advertising in them lying on the open road, in driveways and on the side of the roads. These bags with their contents have been there for days now. They are waterlogged, driven over and generally trash.

My question to the state of South Carolina, Kershaw County and the city of Camden officials: why can’t The State newspaper and its carrier employees be charged with littering? I have watched some citizens walking around their neighborhood picking up these bags and putting them in a large trash bag. The Camden utility department does not clean these up and neither does the state of South Carolina. If I am seen throwing trash out of my car window by a local police officer or county deputy, I can be charged with littering. Isn’t this virtually the same sort of situation? The S.C. Department of Transportation works very hard before each race event cleaning up Springdale Road for race visitors but ignores the trash from the newspaper in our neighborhoods. Something is very wrong here.

I object strenuously to these bags with their advertisements being dropped in my driveway and I feel my neighbors aren’t too happy either with ones in front of their properties, and the bags remain for days. I am sure the advertising must pay well to The State, so some of that money should be spent on cleaning up trash in the neighborhoods.
