An Echo Park resident last Sunday took the above photo of an overflowing trash can at the northeast corner of Sunset Boulevard and Echo Park Avenue. That trash is still there as of this morning. Another trash can is also overflowing in plain sight one block west at Sunset and Logan Street. The resident, in an email to a Council District 13 staff member and The Eastsider asks:
“I realize that Monday was a holiday, but please tell me when the Bureau of Sanitation is supposed to pick this trash up. How long do the residents of Echo Park have to watch trash spill onto our sidewalks and streets? I also realize that our neighborhood trash cans fill up because of people who dump full trash bags into them. What can be done about this? What do other Council Districts do?”

Update: Council District 13 has informed the resident that the Bureau of Street Services is scheduled to pick up the trash on Monday.
