Where are Our Illegal Dumping Areas?

The alley area behind the Fisherman of Men Church has been a long-term trouble spot for illegal dumping

Here’s are two questions I’d like to throw out to the community.

  1. Where are our illegal dumping areas?, and,
  2. What can we do to get ahead of this problem?

My guess is that the first thing we need to do is have a comprehensive list of known trouble areas. As an example, I noticed yesterday that yet again two mattresses and a chair had been dumped in the alley behind the Fisherman of Men Church (former York Theater) located at Georgia and Quebec. This is a problem spot that has been going on for years.

I know there must be other hot spots in the area. Perhaps by identifying them and consistently reporting them we can eventually get ahead of this problem. At the least, we should be able to get organized enough to get the illegal trash removed in a timely manner.

    Not trying to be too cynical, but perhaps we should identify the alleys that AREN’T trouble spots for illegal dumping first. Might be faster that way.

    I would love to help you do something about this, just not sure how.

    If we got a map of the worst places, what would we do then?

    This isn’t even in the alley, it’s a real eye sore right out on Georgia and it’s a huge pile up especially on the weekend…The trash can area in front of Fish in the Hood and the vacant lot across from it too — Georgia and Otis.
