  1. Its good to hear about the good of getting rid of those trash piles. Its about time, when someone took the lead of cleaning up the town. But, there is a great hidden spots of trash piles all over the place!

    Hears one, if you see it report it to the blight office, or send them a notice by e-mail. You don’t have to give a name, because you only are reporting left over piled up trash, and not arresting it, unless, you are the owner. Then contact the sheriffs office,or PD.

    Report anyone, places and things who you think does not belong there on the vacate lots or parcels, plots.

    Report let say, more than two or three bags left somewhere no one goes. Like a back trail head road,or a backyard vacate house. Bring it to the county department,or the blight office attention right of way.

    If you throw out any raw foods, put it in a bag, or some other types’ of closed compartments’. Larva and fly’s don’t can not go into it. It also, caters’ to bees’. Raw foods will send off a massive air Bourne virus that sends a message to them.

    Remember, if you plan on just dumping it off somewhere, and don’t,or didn’t want report it. The law says you are breaking the law when dumping it, and you can go to jail, or get a ticket if you get caught!

    Furthermore, if you are interested in this program contact the blight office for more information regarding it.

  2. nice of walmart to donate 1500 dollars for clean up, I was thinking about picking up all the walmart bags covering the bushes across the street from walmart. Actually, I would like to pick up the trash along hwy 101 going north of town as it is in bad shape as well…great exercise…wonder if cal trans would donate bags to put the trash in??

  3. I think its great that someone is looking at how Crescent City looks! Before summer why doesn’t some group clean up the beach parking area as you come into town from the south? Flat parking, trash containers and pick-nick tables would be nice. My be some of the people on vacation might want to stop and spend some of their money here. Right now Crescent City looks like a town in decline and if I did not live here I probably would not stop here except to get gas.
