This is What We Have Been Forced to Resort To?

Garbage can, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

What ever happened to the idea of placing more garbage cans on main city streets? It looks to me like there are only garbage cans around us near metro stops. So this is a phenomenon I have noticed lately. Individual home owners have been forced to put up plastic bags on their fences in the hopes that people will put their garbage in the bag instead of on the street. From this picture it looks like it is working. But it seems very unfortunate that the onus to keep the street clean has fallen on the home owner. How hard could it be to get more garbage cans on the street? Wait, don’t answer that…
