I came home a little after one o’clock this afternoon and to my dismay and disgust, the trash pile had grown. It had grown all the way to the middle of the parkway. I left another message, and followed up on my reference numbers. Around three-forty I noticed how clean the parkway was when I watered the plants. It looks like a neighborhood again.
Ms. Sullivan at Ward 49 sent a follow-up email at 3:09pm that stated “Our 49th Ward Streets and Sanitation Supervisor spoke with building management and the property is being cleaned up.”
There used to be a trash can.
SSA#19 taxpayers bought that can and I sincerely hope it was damaged and will be replaced. It’s odd how one can walk past something everyday and take it for granted. If it returns, let’s hope people use it. If it doesn’t return, then the burden of picking up sloppy peoples trash is on someone.
Accidental photography…No Littering and Street Cleaning Thursday, July 5. Vehicle owners, please move your cars so streets and san can get the rest of the trash!
