Disneyland Garbage   Disneyland Garbage Minute   Scout Minute

This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
Notes:
conservation is an ongoing chore, but if we keep on it, it is much easier overall.
Script:
Way back in the late 1950s, when Disneyland was new, there were already litterbugs - its not a new thing. As a matter of fact, at Disneyland, trash became a problem.
The goal at Disneyland was to have the park look brand-new every morning when it opened. That meant that every night, people would pick up trash, clean, and repair.
During the day, there were no people walking around picking up trash because there were plenty of trashcans all over. But, some people still chose to throw trash on the ground. And, that trash built up by the end of the day so there was more than what could be cleaned up overnight.

Someone decided that the only way the trash could get picked up would be to work on it all day. So, Disneyland started having people pick up trash during the day.

The results were amazing! The workers picked up far less trash than what had previously been on the ground. As it turned out, when people looked around and saw a wrapper on the ground, they were more inclined to drop their trash instead of finding a trashcan. Once workers kept those few initial wrappers picked up, almost everyone used trashcans.

Things haven't changed - why do people leave their popcorn buckets in movie theaters? Why do smokers throw their butts out at stoplights? Because they are lazy and someone else is doing it.
If we put in some effort to keep our community clean whenever we can, there will be much less trash overall. Do what you can, when you can.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
