Trash and Recycling

Some participants use the example of littering to explain a persistent “ghetto mentality”: people living in the “‘hood” have given up and don’t care about their surroundings because no one else seems to care about them. Those who try to make a positive impact in their neighborhoods are often met with overflowing trash bins and citations from the city for having trash cans out too long on the curb.

This lot is unsafe because this is a body-dumping lot. People kill people and just dump the bodies over there. In the past four years there’s been three or four bodies that’s been found in that lot.
