Wet Trash Day in Southie

As if garbage day in Southie isn't bad enough due to the leftover litter that remains after the trucks have long gone, garbage day in Southie IN THE RAIN is far worse.

Clearly, this has been an awful June here in the Northeast weather-wise.

No sun, daily rain, grey skies, wet Rosie walks, and now wet garbage left on our streets.

Usually, it's standard fare left behind - boxes, wrappers, dog poo, containers - but I had to chuckle at these items all found around a tree:

One high-heeled shoe
Mustard
Prosecco bottle
Batteries
A box, formerly containing sausages

In some circles, that COULD be considered the remnants of a very good night.

It will be less of a problem when the city rolls out the new 32 gallon recycling bins this summer. Hopefully you have some place to store it.

It's good to see you have a sense of humor about it, but that is just gross!
