Clean Up Day April 30th

If the length of the line of cars was any indicator, this years city wide clean up day was a huge success. The line of cars and trucks on the East side of the road was over 5 blocks long and almost 3 blocks long on the West side of the road. These pictures were taken at about 11:30 AM on April 30th.

    I don’t know who suggested not charging to drop off their trash, but I think the city missed the opportunity to break even, or at least off set the cost. With it’s popularity as an indication, I think most of them would have paid a nominal fee to clean up their property, and the city would not have taken such a big hit, in times of budget tightening. I hope that is considered next year.

    This year’s clean up day was the 1st that I have ever participated in. The main reason was the cost, and how it was to be paid. (I refuse to carry large amounts of money – over $10. (I don’t have a lot of money anyway! And I carry less, sometimes no money at all.) Paying by check would be time consuming at the collection point for the workers, and credit cards would be almost impossible. Furthermore, I doubt that they would want to have a lot of cash at the site.) What did they do, make us go into city hall before the event and pay, then show our receipt?? (I, might have been willing to pay $5 for everything that I brought, van and trailer, maybe. Anymore than that and I might as well put it at the curb and pay a trash man to pick it up.)

    I’ll grant you that this year didn’t go off flawlessly, but it worked well enough, for a first try at this revision. Their stated goal of re-purposing whatever they could was another reason that I participated this year. Unfortunately they were so swamped that they couldn’t complete that goal, they just didn’t have enough people working to collect our discards. Maybe it will work better next year! I hope so!!!

    If they do go back to charging…. well I don’t have anything that I absolutely have to get rid of.
