With rains coming and Cal Poly in session, the city of San Luis Obispo should really look at cleaning up those neighborhoods of trash. Anyone who walks east of Highway 1 toward Morro Bay and west from Monterey Street will notice tons of trash beneath the freeways, along sidewalks, lining creeks and parks. The piles upon piles of trash are disgusting. This will be a major hazard once the supposed El Niño comes (if it does). Maybe our wonderful Cal Poly students can lend a helping hand while their great new dorm is being built. It beautifies our city and makes it more pleasant for everyone, plus it’s helpful for the environment.
