Trash along Ballard Ave and elsewhere

    I've been walking by an overflowing trash receptacle at Ballard Ave and 22nd Ave for days now. Granted, New Years Eve probably contributed to the problem, but shouldn't the City (Seattle Public Utilities presumably) be on top of this? Does anyone know how often they maintain the receptacles? Also, does anyone know if there is a City department responsible for street cleaning along the street rights of way? It seems like littering and trash along streets is becoming worse and worse in Ballard. Whatever happened to community service requirements (litter cleanup)? Am I the only one that finds it unsightly and unsanitary to walk by trash everywhere...do others care here, or am I just cranky today? Basically, what's going on here?
