Areas where trash sits next to, not in, bins

You can pretend that The City’s trash bins are basketball hoops – but you ought to keep playing ball until the garbage actually goes in.

A recent report on the state of San Francisco’s many trash receptacles showed that overall cleanliness and upkeep of the bins had met standard last year except for one category: Cleanliness around the trash cans.

The audit results showed that the outer portions of the Richmond and Sunset districts had the lowest scores for unsightly trash that never made it into bins, either due to overflowing, missed free-throws, or folks searching for recyclable materials.

Could it have been all that wind in those western areas?

Only three districts citywide met standard: District 3, 7 and 8, which include neighborhoods in and around the Castro, downtown and North Beach areas, the report said.
