  1. Good idea. Good exercise. Keep the cities, towns and villages of Liberia clean. Also in order to help keep the city of Gompa clean, garbage should be put in garbage bags before being dumped. The EPA may not like the idea of garbage bags, but every household in the US uses garbage bags! There should be a special place where Gompa residents shouldl dump their garbage, the mayor of Gompa ought to look into this. That’ll help keep the blue flies and rodents away from the homes of people.

    My suggestion. Not an attack or a criticism
    by any means.
