Pick Up Thanks

The Westside and in particular the San Andres corridor are disproportionately impacted by illegal dumping on city streets. Over the past two weeks, we have made four or five calls to the city regarding mattresses, sofas, and dressers dumped on or near San Andres and West Pedregosa.

We want to thank the city and MarBorg for the timely pickup of these items, within a day for most, and within hours for a call we made today about a mattress and box springs dumped near the church parking lot on Pedregosa.

In appreciation for your work in helping to keep the Westside safe, clean, and healthy for the families who live here.
