I pick up trash almost every day and yet there's always more trash to replace it. Perhaps signs posted on subways, buses, and trolleys educating the public about the importance of clean, beautiful streets would be helpful. Transit riders are forbidden to eat and drink on public transit. Instead they eat and drink on the streets and throw their trash on the ground. Greater efforts should be taken to educate the public against littering on mass media, in schools, neighborhood associations, houses of worship, everywhere possible.
No, the problems are not fixed. Large trash cans should be in place and the public needs education about the importance of keeping the city clean, healthy, beautiful, and safe.

The trash cans are no longer at this interesection. Trash is being left on the sidewalk, grass, alleys and streets.
This is an ongoing problem due to vehicle and foot traffic. Too many throw litter anywhere even if trash cans are nearby.
The open bags of trash are no longer there.
