Please, don’t give up. I collect litter every morning and evening as I walk my dog (double duty) I had three neighbors approach me last week and thank me for doing this. It’s irritating and unbearable, but I’d much rather pick up than live surrounded by litter. I’ve been thinking of organizing a group to help clean our streets in Petworth on a regular basis, but don’t know how o start. Another thing to do is to report to the DPW as often ad up can, so that they will send crews to clean. I did so during the fall for leaves and it proved effective.
I’m talking frequently to Bowser and other candidates about this “real” issue. It’s in the back burner, but I’m hoping it will be noticed eventually. In the meantime, keep cleaning and educating!
