Take a second to request a trash can for Marshall Street

01/07/2014 9:14 AM by

A neighbor is reporting via SeeClickFix that the trash cans have disappeared from the bus stop at 31st and Marshall over a year ago, and that this has been a messy problem. Go and click to vote for this issue and let’s see what we can get accomplished:

These trash cans were never replaced and this corner (close to two convenience stores and a well-used bus stop) continues to be a huge problem. Bottles, cans, plastic bans often end up on the sidewalk, in the street, and on adjacent properties.

Periodically, neighbors place city super cans, bags for the trash, plastic trash cans and people use them. This suggests to me that a trash can would be used and better still a recycling can/trash combo.

I understand that the city did not want to replace the metal can as it was probably stolen by recyclers, but it’s an important and well-used corner. How about repurposing an underused solar compactor (the one at 25th and E. Broad comes to mine)?
