Kudos to Hardee's of Columbia for drive through receptacle

She's warming up to the chain because of act of civic responsibility, installing a trash receptacle for drive through customers. The act is ending a brief - just 25 year - feud and her family's boycott, which began in the mountains when a manager once told her husband the trash blowing around was "Good Advertising."

By Diane R Wallace Kudos to Hardee's! This Photo and Caption was a pleasant surprise to me. In my opinion, they deserve this recognition.

About 25 years ago, my husband reported the abundance of trash to the local Hardee's manager. Hardee's bags and wrappers littered the parking lot and surrounding area.

The manager informed him; he did not care and was not going to have them picked up because if/when the wind blew them around, it was "free" advertising. My husband was a landscaper and grounds keeper in the area and therefore was extremely sensitive and quick to observe less than perfect grounds.

We never consider patronizing a Hardee's again, until now.
