Was on the northside of the city for most of Saturday and I was shocked by the amount of trash sitting around on the streets, sidewalks and west Park areas. Then I notice saturday night a lot of trash in the shadyside, ellsworth area. One of the things that makes a city look bad is trash laying all over the place. Mr mayor and the Public works, Clean the place up ! !! Would help if the citizens of these areas took the effort to heart as well..

I couldn't agree more. Pittsburgh does have a litter problem. That's for sure.

Hopes, seems to me that this summer the streets have seen more trash than usual. This past weekend was the dirtiest I have seen the Northside. Not a good sign when most of city hall lives in that n-hood. I'll give former mayor O'Connor credit for his REDD UP campaign. It seemed to get people to at least think about trash and where to locate it. So come on, take a little pride in your street's Mr Mayor and everyone else..

It's a funding problem.

During 2004 budget cuts, the city reducsed street cleaning services.

I wouldn't be surprised if street cleaning has been further reduced since 2004.

Geeze that sucks, Pittsburgh was always so clean growing up. That is part of the charm in a city of its size.

The trashy look was one of things that turned me off of Pgh. when I first visited here several years ago. We have lived in several different places across the country due to my husband's military career and Pittsburgh is the trashiest looking overall. It is a shame because it could look so much better with a bit of "elbow grease". We are here now and will be doing our part to make it a bit cleaner.
