Trash littered streets

Hi neighbors,
I bought a home in the 60620 zip code two years ago. Since then every day I am out picking up the bottles, cans and assorted garbage people throw out of their car windows. I even walk across the street and pick up the garbage because it looks so bad. I don't understand this. I came from another part of the city and I never saw this being done. Is every block experiencing this?

  • MEG Neighbor

    Hello All
    I too have been cleaning my block since I’ve been on it (2014) but I don’t mind. I did it at my other residence. But, it that instance quite a few neighbors pitched it. People love to litter but I can’t tell you why. I will continue to keep my block clean. The neighborhood is great with both blue and white collared workers and retirees. Few bad apples everywhere. Enjoy your block and your new home.

  • Nadia RN MSN

    Hi Myra and everyone,
    Yes, maybe people do like to litter. I never thought about it from that perspective.
    I will continue to be out there picking up litter. It doesn't take but a few minutes and it is my way of helping the block look nice. Thank you, I am enjoying my new home.
