Director of Policy and Communications for San Francisco Public Works Rachel Gordon says the city has several initiatives to deal with garbage problems including 1,000 trash dumpsters with sensors to indicate they are full, lock service to make it harder for people to rummage through cans, and 44 new street sweepers coming on line.
In the meantime, the dumpsters seen in Dan's above Facebook post have been cleaned up.
If you see garbage, take video and call 311. The Department of Public Works wants to know.
