Overheard: Venice Needs Less Trash-Throwing Tourists

New, 16 comments

"I am sick and tired of ALL OF THE TRASH in Venice. It has become overwhelming and disgusting. I am not sure how it got so bad, but every day I go out, I spend the entire time picking up trash. We need more trash cans, and we need to make sure people do NOT litter. It is NOT okay. Many times it is the homeless (as I see them do it - leaving beer cans and crap all over the place), but many other times it is those people visiting our neighborhoods on the weekends. I hope that it is not our locals that are trashing our own home. It is disgusting and needs to stop."--10 year Venice resident. [Venice Neighborhood Council's online forum]
