  1. trash EVERYWHERE in the district/a lot of it is generated by homeless tearing open EVERY bag they see on every street;and just pulling contents out and apart(most if not all do not have any connection to mission dist.;except to lay on the sidewalks drunk;shopping carts full of garbage and cans)

    1. The Mission has lots of guys who pick through the trash on trash day. Some are careful not to spill; some aren’t. Where they live and who they are is obscure.

And just tirar basura as a matter of course, as if it were just a part of their culture. Too bad.
