In San Francisco came up with a new way to deal with dirt and feces on the streets
In Tenderloin In San Francisco, California, they launched a new private-funded program to increase the number of departures for industrial-grade washing machines that cleanse sidewalks from feces. Writes about it Fox News.
In connection with complaints of a large number of feces on the sidewalks, it was decided to increase the cleaning from once a month to once a week.
According to program manager Matt Haney, this year the Tenderloin District Public Organization, which is a non-profit district group, received an additional 260 000 dollars, which is four times more than the organization for professional cleaning of the sidewalks of the district.
In San Francisco, property owners in the 30 neighborhoods of the district helped fund the program as the district continues to suffer from a large number of homeless people.
“We all know that we need more walking patrols,” Haney said. - We need more help for the homeless. We need more open bathrooms, we need more trash cans. We want a clean, safe and healthy community for all who live and work here. This is a huge, huge step forward. "
The program is designed to support the efforts already undertaken by the city department of public works. Every day the streets of the Tenderloin district are steamed and washed with fire hoses.
In addition, under the new program, six members of the nonprofit organization’s team will visit different areas daily to clean sidewalks using new, portable, wireless, and powerful cleaning products.
In late November, the mayor of San Francisco London Brid announced that it will extend the round-the-clock schedule for three public toilets, created three months ago as part of the Pit Stop pilot program, until June 2020.
Haney said only one of these toilets serves the Tenderloin area. He called on the mayor to open more latrines to help reduce the amount of human waste on the sidewalks.
