Dismayed by dump

Please be advised that the beautiful area at the top of Ridgeway Street and Bernhardt Way and all the way down Webster Avenue in Pittsburgh has become a disgusting dumping ground for local slobs who think nothing of tossing construction waste, old mattresses, used condoms from nocturnal prostitution, ad infinitum/ad nauseam , onto the land.

Appropriate agencies have been contacted, only to respond, “If it's not in front of a street address, we can't pick it up.” Say what?

I just moved here from filthy New York City and while Pittsburgh's main thoroughfares are remarkably clean in comparison, smaller side streets are reminiscent of what I thought I left behind.
