That’s annoying (and disgusting).

I wonder what the best way is to address this. On the one hand, I think it’s not a bad thing to ticket/warn people for not maintaining their portion of the sidewalk, tree box, and maybe even the gutter; I get tired of picking up litter from the whole damn block and wondering why other people can’t be bothered to pick up just the litter in front of their own houses.

On the other hand, it seems like there ought to be a grace period, because unless you work from home and are constantly looking out the window, the litter might linger for a few hours or a day until you notice it.

You might also try contacting Jim Graham and seeing if he can get the Green Team to make this one of the areas it covers.
