In an effort to reduce waste and ramp up its “Yes We Can!” pilot program, the San Francisco Public Works Department is adding 38 new receptacles to Mission Street, bringing the total amount of receptacles to 73.
The goal of adding the receptacles is to provide more places for people to dispose of waste properly, not a place for people to use the cans inappropriately, according to San Francisco Public Works Department Operations Chief Larry Stringer.
NBC Bay Area has more information:
The amount of trash cluttering Market Street in San Francisco may soon dwindle. That's because the city by bay is installing 38 new trash receptacles along the typically dirty stretch of pavement.
San Francisco's Public Works Department on Tuesday announced the garbage can additions as part of its "Yes We Can!" pilot program designed to reduce waste around the city. The 38 new bins bring the number of trash receptacles along Mission Street between 14th and Cesar Chavez Streets to 73.
