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: A new month brings new trash.
To begin, fireworks: they look pretty. And on Halloween, South Vancouver was lit up by explosions roughly every 2.5 seconds.
However, in the grim light of morning, all we're left with is sad soggy garbage.
Obviously it is too hard to pick up the remains of your explosives and put them in the appropriate trash receptacle.
Of course, the end of the month also brings other fun forms of garbage, like overflowing Dumpsters!
And if you're particularly canny, you can outfit your whole home with alley trash!
Sometimes I wonder... does anyone care about this neighbourhood at all?
Previously on East Van Garbage Watch: We need to talk about Kingsway.
