So we recently looked behind our townhome complex on 22nd Ave S btwn E Yesler Way & Main St and noticed some jerks dumped a few items on the sidewalk like a set of truck tires and an ugly orange couch (who does that?!). Both items are very unsightly and not quite sure how to go about removing them. It’s not directly in front of or on anyone’s property so I’m concerned it’ll just stay there unless someone speaks up, or possibly get even worse by attracting more illegal dumping. Anyone have any tips how to address this type of thing? Would the city be inclined to take care of it since it’s blocking public walking space?
Side note – I suspect those idiots dumped their crap there because that little corner on 22nd right before Yesler is just overrun w/ some crazy looking weeds and bushes, so perhaps they thought no one would care? However, we’ve been meaning to call the city and ask who should take care of that area because I checked w/ our neighbors and that is section not on any of our property lines. Technically it’s the city’s land and we’re not sure exactly who or which department we should talk to. If anyone has any advice on that as well, we’d greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance! Hopefully we can get that street looking more presentable and walkable for the warmer outdoorsy season.
