With the warm weather bringing more people outside, we’re starting to notice more one of Baltimore’s perpetual problems: trash. Junk piled up in alleys because of illegal dumping; on the sides of roads from people throwing fast food containers, or whatever else, out car windows; caught in the bushes and trees in parks and floating in streams. It is everywhere — a tired, old quality of life problem dating back decades that city officials have never been able to fix.
Cleaning up one neighborhood is good. Cleaning up all of Baltimore — while creating lots of jobs — is much better.
