FAIRFIELD — Surgical masks, wipes and plastic gloves have become a common sight throughout parking lots and along roads.
“I’ve seen it this way for months now and I know we can do better,” said Alexis Harrison, of Fairfielders Protecting Land and Neighborhoods (FairPLAN). “While we have to be very conscious of health implications during the pandemic, we can’t be distracted and litter. COVID-19 will eventually go away. Plastic waste, it’s here forever.”
