Thank you to the bus riders who are depositing their trash in a bag instead of leaving litter all over the ground. This bag of trash has been hanging on a tree for weeks at a bus stop in front of Justa’s Chicken at 4711 N. Chambliss St., Lincolnia.
The Annandale Blog first heard about it in December, but we don’t know how long it had been there. It survived the blizzard and was still there on Feb. 6. The manager at Justa’s Chicken told us the bag was put up by someone who waits at the bus stop.
Will this trash ever be collected? Apparently not. The Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority doesn’t collect trash at bus stops; it’s the county’s responsibility, a WMTA spokesperson says. According to a Fairfax County spokesperson, the county doesn’t have the funds to collect trash at bus stops without shelters, like this one.
