Trash Bins Versus Aesthetics

While the initial motive for removing the bins is prompted by the landowner's request, Ms. Cornwall hit the nail on the head by stating her goal as "improving the aesthetics of the area." I am disheartened by the number of first-time VI visitors who state it will be their "last time," sighting, among other issues – "the unsightly garbage piles along the road." Referring of course to the bin sites.
