East Van Garbage Watch: We need to talk about Kingsway
East Vancouver smells like shit.
Between West Coast Reduction's rendering plant on North Commercial, the vomit and urine streaking the sidewalks and alleyways after special events, and the epic piles of garbage, it's hard to argue that the east side of town smells like anything other than rancid death.
To wit, I present the lastest installment of East Van Garbage Watch (patent pending): a semi-regular series of photos of disgustingness.
Today's offender: We need to talk about Kingsway.
Not content to be a quick route into Burnaby, this diagonal divider is the home to a metric buttload of garbage.
As Twitter user @CityHallWchVAN documents in the photos below, Kingsway is kind of a hot, trashed mess.
It harbours much trash, so smelly, in its fair alleys.
Furniture, naturally, goes on the median, where it can be beautified with spray paint.
Bonus pic: As @CityHallWchVAN points out, garbage is hardly confined to the east side of town. Here's Cambie Street, visited by some clothing fairies.
(Thanks for the pics!)
