Recycling at Long Wharf
This 311 user writes, “I’m frustrated that, despite all the city’s green initiatives, there are no recycling bins in the Long Wharf area. I was down there on Sunday afternoon, and all the trash cans I saw were overflowing, mostly with plastic. Is there any way to add recycling bins in this high traffic area?”

Greenway needs to be cleaned up. Gives one the feeling that you’re traipsing through their bedroom when taking a nice morning walk in the park.
I know your trying to add a little levity to the issue and it’s an eyesore to many but it’s a sad situation that this problem happens in this country. You have to walk a mile in these peoples moccasins.
A lot of these homeless may have been the campers from under Washington St bridge, displaced by the construction. So far they have been run out of every playground in the North End.
Long Wharf is owned (literally, except for the buildings) by the Boston Redevelopment Authority. I imagine that trash collection would be their responsibility, unless whoever picks up trash in Christopher Columbus Park (Parks Department or Public Works Department) does them the favor of picking up trash on Long Wharf as well. Let’s hope that 311 is able to sort it out.
