Letter: Please return our flower pots

To the person who took the large flower pots off my curb: Please, I would like them back.

I’m going to guess that you assumed they were trash once the sanitation department had emptied the pots and left them at the curb next to the empty garbage can. Trash they were not. These are the containers I use to hold grass clippings, leaves and other yard waste.

I understand when people comb the streets on cleanup week, feeling free to take what people leave out. Every other week of the year, don’t take what is not yours or what is not clearly labeled as free. You wouldn’t steal an empty garbage can, so why did you think it was OK to steal these empty pots?

If you read this, please return them to the curb from which you took them. Thank you.
