I'm just rambling trying to get something going so please if your going to comment be constructive. I have read hundreds of posts, mostly negative, about the "slum" we live in. Obviously we cannot walk onto someone's privately owned property and clean it up but there are alot of areas that arent privately owned that need some cleaning.

May I suggest that we start a list in this post of places we would like to see cleaned up. Many, many people have expressed an interest in HELPING to clean up our village. One of the problems is that finding a mutuallly agreeable time to do a clean up is difficult because our daily living schedules all differ. What I propose is that if you want to make a difference you can go on
this post, find an area listed here, grab a 10 pack of garbage bags and go fill them! We all dont have to go at the same time or the same day, eventually 10 bags at time will make a difference. Not to say that getting a few friends together to clean up an area isnt a good idea, both would be effective.

What am I unsure of is if we left our bags on the roadside of the place we cleaned, will the garbage men pick it up? If a couple of strong individuals drag a piece of discarded furniture to the roadside, would that be picked up by sanitation? Are we even allowed to do this without village government consent? Can we go onto vacant lots? And if we can and you have one on your block maybe a neighbor effort or an appeal for help on this post can bring together willing villagers to help clean it out? I really have more questions than answers right now but I am hoping they will be answered and we can find a way to get this done.

I see post after post saying the village should do this, the village should do that ......WE ARE THE lets do it!
