Trash in the streets Kenyon & Irving near Georgia Ave
I imagine this is an issue beyond just Kenyon and Irving Streets but as that is the area I live, those are the streets I notice the most. Does anyone that lives on the streets feel as embarrassed as I do to have people come to your house because of the amount of trash and litter there is in the streets? I have taken to the street a handful of times by myself to clean up the trash and can generally cover about a half a block in about 30 minutes when working alone.
I know some small groups in the community used to go around cleaning up every other weekend or so but that hasn’t happend in a while. Has anyone had any success managing the volume of litter/trash in their area or setup a regular community cleanup? If at least 10 people were willing to help, I can’t imagine it would take more than about 15 minutes to clear a block.
Thoughts or interest in doing this around the neighborhood? Let me know.
