I would like to know why people are so lazy as to leave them out much longer than 12 hours before or after garbage pickup? I would also like to know why people who seem to enjoy making their homes and front yards neat and tidy like to store their cans in full view at the front of their home or garage.
Do we have an ordinance to keep these cans out of sight? Do we have an ordinance that they must not be on public streets or sidewalks more than 12 hours before or after pickup? If we don't have these ordinances, then why not?
To me this is one of the worst problems we have in Palo Alto. It is up there with loose dogs, noisy leaf sweepers, airplane noise and anything else that cause public nuisance.
OK - rant over.
