Another vote for more trash bins! Also coordinated cleanup/beautification efforts for the community.
There is SO MUCH TRASH everywhere and very few city waste bins available, especially along Milwaukee Ave. and California Ave. and by bus stops. The ones that are there are overflowing after a day or two. These streets look horrible compared to other neighborhoods. Would love to see more wire bins along these routes as well as asking local businesses to take responsibility for picking up trash in front of their establishments and any nearby empty storefronts. Another idea is to organize a way to get neighbors together to perform occasional cleanups of trash from the alleys, sidewalks, debris from sewer drains and coordinate any beautification efforts (picking weeds on the parkways, etc.) on their surrounding residential blocks on a semi-regular basis. (The latter part of this proposal is related to sidewalks, alleys, and streets I guess!)
As discussed in a previous meeting and volunteer emails, this idea is under review by the 1st ward Office for intergovernmental agreements and feasibility of trash service.
