It would seem to me that placing your trash, recycle and compost cans out of sight in your back, or side yard would be a common sense type thing but after riding around my neighborhood it would appear to be not so obvious. There are quite a number of houses with their cans sitting or visible from the sidewalk in front of the house. Am I the only one who finds this distasteful? Isn't there some form of civic pride that would motivate people to make their front yards as clean and presentable as possible? Should we look to the city to notify people to clean up or at least put their trashcans out of site? How about trash cans with no lids? My neighbor has several cans with no lids and on hot days eesh.
Am I oversensative to this?
