Eyes on the Street: Keeping Trash Off the Sidewalks in Buenos Aires

“Not only have I seen very few cars parked on sidewalks,” writes Clarence, “there are hundreds of spaces in the city where trash pick up is located in the street in what were once parking spaces.”
This is a logical alternative to the piles of garbage that obstruct and stink up city sidewalks, attracting vermin and even endangering pedestrians . How nice it would be if NYC, where so many people can barely conceive of using street space for anything other than automobile storage , could get behind it.
Maybe Clarence can find out if these bins require community board approval.
