Is “Household Garbage” the Cause of Overfilled Garbage Cans in Golden Gate Park?

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

This state of this overflowing garbage can is fairly typical in the more urban areas of Golden Gate Park. But what’s it filled with? Some of it looks exactly like the junk mail I get, and there are other pieces from Amazon.com and UPS. The thing is that we’re talking “household garbage,” the stuff that belongs in your own trash.  

So, what’s stopping the City and County of San Francisco from digging through this can like a starving raccoon and issuing citations to the addressees of these items? That’s the way they do it in Washington D.C., anyway. Even throwing away something small, like a used airline ticket, can get you a citation in next week’s mail.

This isn’t an unusual thing in GGP, it’s not during a street festival or the Bay to Breakers, it’s just another day. Click to expand:

If you want to reduce junk mail in the first place, here’s an article from the Chronicle that gives some pointers (but they don’t list their own number) (but actually calling that number and opting out doesn’t seem to have much effect anyway) (but oh well). 

On it goes.
