I see garbage all over the place. People throw it all over the place around here currently and they did back then. The fast food joints have paper and plastic blowing out of their dumpsters into all the property around them. I've cleaned up roadsides and parks since the 70's and the amount of trash dumped is about the same as ever.
I have never seen people dump a whole picnic's worth of trash on the grass in the middle of the park. Thus my OP.

Also, it seems in my lifetime that littering has gone down. The road to our cabin, for example, rarely has trash on it anymore.

Trash blowing out of dumpsters isn't really what I'm talking about - in that case, someone at least attempted to throw stuff away.
