The Vancouver Sun has a story today about a Kits resident’s initiative to place a garbage can outside the Rogers Video outlet on York @ Yew.
Pat Freiboth was walking home from work along her favourite street in Vancouver when she got fed up with stepping over the litter that lined the corner of Yew and York in Kitsilano. […]
[She] purchased a family-sized garbage can [and] printed a sign to let people know they can put their trash in the can instead of dropping it on the ground.
In the two weeks that the garbage can has been there, Pat has had to empty it three times already, clearly demonstrating the need for it in that location. She is now looking for a corporate sponsor that will help her place more of these Adopt-a-Cans around Vancouver.
