Week 72 – The Bus Stops Here

March 2, 2010

Going back for round two on the bottom of the hill on Sylvan Way and Delridge (across Sylvan Way from Home Depot), we noticed that our last effort two weeks ago was completely unnoticeable.

Another two buckets in less than two minutes was depressing.  Ben noticed that the places where the bus stops but were void of garbage cans were truly a trash magnet.

We understand budget cuts with the city but having mandatory garbage cans at bus stops are the least we can do. What or whom decides which bus stop garners a garbage can?

I noticed on the Metro website that the bus# 128 only comes every half an hour during certain times of the day.  This may be a large cause to the pile of trash next to the bus stop pole.  People complain about the rubbish at their daily bus stop all over the internet, so obviously people do care.  A simple garbage can could help solve a monumental problem.

I bet even that person who stands there every day wouldn’t mind bending down during their waiting time to beautify their daily bus stop.  When you see a pretty trashy area, people feel inclined to add to the madness.  When you see a pretty area with a large garbage can next to it, people feel inclined to “stop” the madness.
