Overflowing trash cans

Lunch at Nuevo Leon, yummy! Couldn't help but notice the overflowing garage cans on all the corners from the east side of Ashland Avenue to the closed street east of Blue Island Ave. Except, E/W corner of 18th by the Alderman's office. It was noon, not midnight. This has been known as a dirty, gang infested neighborhood for many years, now that things are looking up, come on alderman, "Clean it up."

  • Erik H Loyola & UofC alumnus, Chicago Loot Drop charity

    The story about trash cans along Halsted in Bridgeport is that they took them away because people were putting too much trash in them—they'd fill up too quickly after they were emptied—so the old alderman had them removed rather than sit out overbrimming with garbage.

    So count your blessings, I guess.

  • FGFM What the Cappleman!

    Someone floated the theory in Rogers Park that people take litter with them when there are no garbage cans.

    Maddie - EB has a web crawler that looks for addresses in Chicago neighborhoods, and posts searchable articles with those addresses in the corresponding neighborhood forum. In this case, it found Newleaf's address on Loyola and put the article in Roger's Park. If you were to search the neighborhoods that correspond to other addresses on that page, you will find the article posted in those, too.

    It's a bot that does the searching, so it's not always a Chicago address. Confusion often ensues when the bot finds a street address in another town and then posts it in the EB Chicago neighborhood it "thinks" it belongs.
