The city had some artists paint our trash receptacles. How do you like them? We think they're cute.

The floating crane is removing the pilings from the demolished pier and laying them in the water's edge on the beach in front of the Sector Naval where a front-end loader picks them up and carries them off.

You just got your undies in a bundle over the pink trim on the school and not you're excited over painted garbage cans?

Anything to inspire people to use the garbage cans is a positive! Thanks for the updates on the progress of the replacement of the pier - much appreciated.

Ya right, if I don't see a pretty garbage can, I'm throwing my trash on the ground. Please give the local people more credit than that.

How about a big can that says "Por favor deposita tu basura aquí"

Several years ago I saw a guy dump a bag of trash right next to a garbage can near the Zocalo. And it looks like that might have happened here, too.

Businesses and residences are discouraged from putting their bags of garbage in the containers meant for pedestrians. Since the garbage truck passes on our street at least twice a day it isn't a problem. What IS a problem are restaurants that put their used grease in plastic bags and leave them there. They often get broken and sometimes the garbage workers don't want to mess with them (can't say as I blame them).

My comment wasn’t meant to discredit anyone!!! Something new or different tends to draw peoples attention no matter where it might be, which does encourage usage.
