    Ask if they can have Debbie schedule a Safer cleanup with Don's crew. They do an excellent job of clean up.

    Then ask if the Weed sprayer can come and spray at the alley and around paremeters of lots with metal post so there is less growth that has to be hand hacked.

    Then ask if Josie can have Rat Patrol come down your alley. They need to Bait and order replacement garbage cans, and replacement for damaged cans. If you have lots of can theft, residents need to put cans in and out of the alley for garbage pickup days to avoid more theft.

    We are STUCK because we cannot get CPD to catch can thieves and arrest them or give them a ticket. Same for those who litter. Fill in a form 21-235 form and turn it in to the Superintendent. CAPs ois supposed to be the mainstay of ordering city services.

    Search COMMUNITY CONCERNS AND CITY SERVICES,, 2018, Directive and you can see it

    Read the Directive. Reroute orders to CPd CAPS and DEMAND from the Superintendent the District people do as he directed.

    The problem is ACCOUNTABILITY in every city department. Crews get dispatched. They may or may not do the work you ordered. Nobody sits on their heads until it gets done the right way. Emailing directly their Commissioner and telling the Commissioner the truth of what is happening in the field is one GREAT way to get the work done.

    It has taken a long time but we cleaned up a disgustingly filthy 6-8 block area. It was a real struggle of wills between union feet on the ground slacking and their supervisors. The Mayor and Commissioner of a department yield a big bat.

    Redirect your strategy for clean up. This method will work. It just takes followup after followup after followup.

    If you have time to walk with Rat Patrol, the Safer Crew, other City crews the job done will be better. Why, you are watching. You will be the only person watching because typically supervisors let false reports get submitted and it looks like things are good in the field.

    If you follow this protocol; post the results and how fast you got results. SHARING success is the best way to get things done faster, better, cheaper.

Who is trashing Chicago?

There is litter everywhere and it seems to only be getting worse. Is there a volunteer organization that has a 2018 clean up plan and ideas on how to stop the habit of trashing the city?

  • There are usually clean up events around Earth Day in the spring. Check with your local parks, alderman offices, etc. to find an event nearby.

    It is embarrassing and so ugly. I've said this before here, but it seems like some kind of protest against 'the man' or the city or the world in general. How can you trash up where you live? Self respect starts at home and can spread through your life. There are plenty of garbage cans around and surely you can bring your food and drink waste home in your car to your own garbage can instead of chucking it out on the street - I am so tired of fixing my bike flats from broken glass.

    The sides of the expressways are horrible right now. Not a great first look at our city for visitors and potential clients from other cities and countries. I doubt private volunteers would be allowed there to clean up so now we need chain gangs or public funding to clean it up! Miserable.

    'Don't Mess with Texas' actually started as a public campaign to stop littering. Maybe we need some kind of campaign to educate.
