Letter writer Raymond Bahr ( "City cleanup requires more than sweeping," April 14) correctly identifies trash in the yards of vacant houses as a major source of harbor pollution. While cleaning these yards with bulldozers is helpful, this approach fails to address the issue as to why these locations are trash magnets. City residents who wish to dispose of an unwanted sofa or TV have limited options. Unless they own a car or truck, they cannot transport their unwanted items to a dump, and bulk trash pickup is infrequent and requires prior registration online or by phone.

It's high time for all to get involved with recycling agendas. I live in a condominium in northeast Baltimore County where, on every street, there are dumpsters, clearly denoted for either garbage or recycling. They are strategically placed throughout the complex. And yet when I open the lid of the garbage dumpster, I see many recyclable items. Should I have to be the one who has to differentiate between garbage and recyclables and sort out those items for my neighbors? Are there still people truly that lazy, that indifferent, to the concept?

Mayor Lloyd R. Helt Jr. calls it a "vexing problem."Business property owner and former Councilman Charles B.

When Mike Collins talks about the fall harvest, he doesn't mean pumpkins.He is referring to the microwaves and rubber rafts that are Dumpster-bound at marinas with working yards, where boats are repaired, as upscale boat owners clear their vessels for the off season of the usable items they plan to replace next year.Collins is among a small Annapolis-area community of maritime tradespeople and live-aboards who rescue good merchandise from marina trash bins.The two best seasons are fall, when boat hibernation begins, and spring, when a new year calls for new furnishings.

People Who Care About a Clean Community. . . Sometime in January, I looked out my bedroom window and saw a tremendous amount of trash in our community. There were mattresses, bikes, weight benches, motorcycles and other assorted items. There were approximately 100 bags of trash piled next to a house. During our one snowstorm, I approached some of the neighbors. Overwhelmingly, the response was "you're not going to make a difference, people just don't care." That didn't deter me. I printed and delivered a community newsletter asking for volunteers to clean up to the 80 homes in the neighborhood.

The best and worst of the volunteer fire and ambulance service in Harford County were on full public display over the past week, bringing into sharp focus exactly what is at stake as the county moves ahead with plans to evaluate the way fire, rescue and ambulance services are provided. Last Friday, when a tornado ripped through the part of Fallston near the intersection of Belair Road and Route 152, volunteers were out in force securing roadways, cordoning off dangerous areas and beginning the process of cleaning up even as lightning was still in the sky and the weather remained unstable.

On Wednesday, Aug. 31, Baltimore County began providing non-potable water at all career fire stations for residents with homes using well water who remain without power and have no running water. "Four days after Irene, we recognize that the need for water is becoming critical for thousands of residents with wells," said County Executive Kevin Kamenetz in a statement. When coming to a fire station for water, residents should bring containers with them.   Most residents on wells live in rural areas outside the limits of public utilities.

I want to thank whoever dumped two sofas on the side of Supplee Lane for reminding the rest of us how ignorant some people are and how throwing "trash" destroys the little bit of beauty left in our area It took a lot of idiocy to haul those couches out of your house, load them on a truck, drive the truck to Supplee Lane, and then dump the first couch partway down the road, and then drive a little further and dump the second one.

HAVRE DE GRACE -- The half-dozen big cardboard boxes on the basement floor had been annoying me for some time.They were Trouble, with a capital T which rhymes with C which stands for Clutter. You had to weave through them or jump over them to get to the clothes washer, which in our odd house lives in the basement. And they were a special nuisance when it rained hard. This was because the basement sometimes floods a little, and then the boxes had to be moved or put up on blocks to keep them dry.Thus it was that one afternoon when I was in a housewifely clutter-eliminating mood I decided to go through them, separate the useful from the useless, and get the latter to the Dumpster before I changed my mind.
