This is outrageous. Mount Vernon Plaza or a local business leaves its massive trash bin in the alley between M and L Streets on 10th Street NW. It blocks traffic and MUST GO NOW. This must be a fire hazard and thus a violation. This a public alley...not the alley of this trash container's owner. PLEASE REMOVE IT!
There used to be four trash cans (big metal city ones) on each of the corners at 18th Street and Riggs Place NW. Over the past few months, all four of them have been removed and now there is no place within 3 - 4 blocks each direction to dump trash. This is especially a problem because of the number of pedestrians that walk on 18th street. Please bring the garbage cans back. This was an earlier post ( reference 13-00249393) which the city first said we have to pay for the cans (but we're talking about city cans and not personal residence trash containers) and then they said that the issue was closed without addressing why the cans are gone and/or if they will bring them back.

Heading westbound on R st NW there are three traffic lights all within 1/2 block of each other at 6th St., Rhode Island and 7th St. These lights are often timed so that motorists have to wait nearly a full cycle at each one. During busier times, this causes traffic on R street to back up into Rhode Island Ave. and 6th Street. Cars heading west on R have no choice but to occupy the bike lane as well as the right-turn only lane between R.I. and 7th. This issue may be related to the bicyclist complaints about this same intersection. It is a dangerous and annoying situation for everyone and could be solved easily with better timed lights.
Three cans that have been awaiting removal for over 5 weeks. You'll know the three cans I'm talking about because they are, empty, dirty (from being on the sidewalk for 5 weeks) and have a yellow sticker that says "take me" because they're waiting on the City to take them.
