Don’t Trash Rehash

Rendering of the banner on a Collection Vehicle

We’re back with the Don’t Trash the Bike Lanes campaign!  As you may recall, last year we began to design a campaign in partnership with the Bureau of Sanitation to remind Angelenos to refrain from placing their trash cans in bike lanes (or otherwise obstructing them).  The campaign will focus on training Bureau of Sanitation employees to not place refuse bins in bike lanes after dumping, and will raise public awareness with a banner campaign on Sanitation Vehicles.

In preparation for launching this campaign, we wanted to get updated input from you, our readers, on bike lanes particularly hard hit by trash bins.  So far our list includes the following streets, which are ranked according to complaints we have received from the public (top priority labeled as 1):

1 – Venice Blvd/Sawtelle (Eastbound)
1 – Silver Lake Blvd b/w Duane/Sunset (both directions)
2 – Venice Blvd/405 (Westbound)
2 – Eagle Rock Blvd b/w Fletcher/York (Northbound)
2 – Avenue 50 b/w El Paso and Figueroa (both directions)
3 – Exposition b/w Vermont and Western (both  directions)
4 – Ohio (Eastbound)
4 – Reseda (Northbound)
4 – Griffin (Southbound)
4 – Griffith Park Bl
