Los Angeles Suffocating in Trash, Urgent Action Needed
A big reform should be implemented in the Los Angeles City agencies to fight illegal trash dumping. It was advised that it would be a good idea to send out cleanup groups to various communities, but also to install countless additional trash cans and perform a research aiming at pinpointing hard-hit areas.
These were the results of a report called “Improving Livability in Los Angeles”, counting 47 pages, which was created by the City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana. The report calculated the so-called “cleanliness rating index” which is a sign of a more proactive approach to the problem. According to Santana, the authorities should employ nonprofit organizations which were be in charge of identifying areas where people leave big items on the streets, like furniture. The strategy somewhat resembles the one targeting graffiti.
The report came half a year after Santana's office warned that the global image of the city is under threat due to such an increase in trash on the streets, camps of homeless people and illegal dumping. According to the memo, due to the lack of interest coming from authorities to resolve the issue and the fact that people are behaving irresponsibly, the city is now in the “constant state of uncleanliness”.
The work group, which was in charge of coming up with a more efficient strategy, recommended that the number of trash cans are tripled in areas of the city which have dense pedestrian traffic. Los Angeles currently has some 1,000 trash cans, whereas New York has 25,000 and Washington 4,800. It is obvious a much larger number of trash cans is of utmost importance in LA.
