I was away for a few days and came home to see this bed frame still sitting out side of 1736. Its been close to 10 days now.

On the walk to Lusher, along Broadway, I managed to pick up all this trash. I’m 100% for Geaux Cups but, y’all… throw away your damn trash. And by that I mean, in a garbage can.
This block is notorious for the college apartments, frat houses, and loads of trash. One would think that since this is a known issue, it would have been resolved. But the trash remains. I took these pictures on September 4 about 530pm. It was Tuesday. Today is Wednesday which is trash collection day. I will drive by later to see if anything has been picked up.
I had hopes for this one. We knew the neighbors who lived here before they sold the house and it was turned into a rental. Last year’s renters were mostly fine. This year’s are not off to a good start. Trash was pick up is Saturday and Wednesday. This was taken on Sunday September 2. The trash will now sit out like this until at least Wednesday September 5.

2506 State Street has been like this for a week. The critters have now torn the plastic bags & started to strew the garbage in the walk. The building is rented by Tulane students. One neighbor wrote: “I am very upset by the garbage situation and the lack of concern about it of the students. We just relocated here from the [another city] where we lived amidst the students of the University of [deleted for privacy] for 30 years. They, too, had their trash problems, especially around move-in times, but the current situation at rental housing around Tulane-Loyola is way beyond anything I have ever seen. There seems to be a disregard for basic care of the surrounding neighborhoods. I’m surprised that the residents seem to put up with it, especially when there are so many lovely homes right next to trash-strewn rental housing. I had no idea of how to address it until your post showed up on Nextdoor — THANKS.”
