I must admit I have done the same for years but only on my own street. You wouldn’t believe the amount of trash that winds up in my front yard everyday. I don’t know if it’s the trash/recycle guys when they come to pick up the trash or just people mindlessly tossing trash into my yard?? I usually clean my entire small block – one of my neighbors told me I was crazy – but just because she didn’t mind living on a filthy street doesn’t mean that I do. I would add one thing to your request and that is next spring and summer once a week we must water our street trees. They do so much for our environment, shade, temperature control, beauty. But they suffer do to very small, cramped spaces that their roots have to grow in and lack of water in our hot, humid D.C. summers. So please everyone, while you’re picking up that trash, please hose down your street trees or take a gallon bucket and give it a 5 gallon drink of water every week. It will repay you in dozens of ways.
