I noted in the caption for this photo that plastic bags like this one line Chollas Parkway in the Oak Park neighborhood of San Diego.

What I didn’t point out is that the litter doesn’t only consist of plastic bags, and it’s not by any means contained to the roadway.

If you step across the road and go down through the trees into Chollas Creek, you’ll see mounds of trash piled up just feet from the water.

Is there a place in your neighborhood where trash is piling up? E-mail me at sam.hodgson@voiceofsandiego.org and tell me where it is. And we’ll check back to Chollas Creek in the near future to see if these same piles are sitting there.
