"In the hip Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles dozens of residents fanned out along Sunset Boulevard, picking its well-littered gutters and sidewalks clean of trash.
'We've never done this before,' said Helen Nasillski, a ballet instructor who was out collecting trash with her husband and two children. 'There's a different feeling in the air these couple of days.'"
Hey, it seems that Silver Lake is hip! Finally, we feel culturally relevant. Anyway, thank you Helen for coming out and there's a story about you in Buffalo!
Whenever she takes her dog out for a walk and a poop (this is a trash website, I can say "poop"), she takes a larger plastic bag and fills it with all of the trash that she sees along her walk. Not only is she not leaving her dog poop on the sidewalk, she is leaving it cleaner than she found it!

We even had two news stations come out. Below is the article from ABC News....
Thank you to everyone who came out to clean today. We really appreciate your enthusiasm and dedication. Photos coming soon!

Here are two dead chickens thrown on the side of the street, do you think it's time to do something about the trash problem in parts of Silver Lake? (there were actually three or four along the sidewalk, but we have pictures of these two)
A few of our volunteers cleaning up along Santa Monica near Sunset...I think our next t-shirts are going to read "No, we are not convicts":
With no trash cans, this is where trash ends up, before:
After we helped to clean it up:
After a successful clean up!
We even got free drinks from Intelligensia for our efforts!

Michelle Rodriguez Has Trash Time
Fast and the Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez wipes her eyes and carries out some garbage as she fulfills her remaining hours of her court-ordered hard labor community service on Monday in Los Angeles.
The 30-year-old former Lost actress had previously served time at the Lynwood Detention Facility after violating terms of her DUI probation.
Rodrigriguez walked the side of the L.A. freeways and cleaned away debris and weeds in the standard orange vest and hardhat.
