Dear PoPville – Any Idea What Happened to the Public Trash Cans in Columbia Heights?

Dear PoPville,

A few weeks ago I noticed the public trash can at the bus stop on the SW corner of Irving & Sherman had been removed. I hadn’t heard anything about trash can removals in the area, but at first I thought maybe it was getting replaced as some belated element of the Sherman Ave. reconstruction project. But there’s no sign of anything happening, so I was wondering if you had any idea what was going on. Is this a neighborhood-wide trash can removal, or more targeted than that?

I’m hoping the change isn’t permanent, because we already have enough public littering and illegal alley dumping in the vicinity.

Anyone else notice trash cans being removed?
