  1. Agree with Judith. Also, with no street cleaning Jan – March means we need more on the ground people picking up litter. I would rather street cleaning those three months than look at these disgusting streets all winter 🙁

  2. This mess looks like it was the result of a spilled or poorly emptied restaurant trash bin. The restaurant should have been responsible for it. Note the cans, bottles, etc. I see similarly broken bottles frequently due to poor disposal- often in sidewalk cracks, all along Hanover st. Most businesses clean up in the morning, but others chronically leave a mess and leaking trash or poorly disposed of glass.

  3. This seems to happen more often than not, from the can/bottle collectors rip open the trash bags and leave big holes in the plastic trash bags.
    Don’t forget the seagulls too, they have a party ripping open trash bags and eating the garbage.
