Long Wharf Drive New Haven, CT
I walk the Long Wharf Promenade/Nature Preserve almost every day. The litter is out of control. I was curious if anyone from the City orthe Land Trust is responsible for cleaning. I really think the City needs to provide more trash receptacles, although I really don't think that will help. Police need to monitor for littering fines when they can. Can the food trucks be held responsible for cleaning up the mess that blows into the land areas around the sound from their customers. It is disgusting and an eyesore. It starts around Lenny & Joes and goes all the way down to the Veterans Memorial. YOu cannot see it from the road as most of it gets trapped in the rock ledge and seagrass. Empty booze bottles, broken glass, dirty diapers, makeshift homeless people sleeping areas in the seagrass out of crushed cardboard, oodles of paper plates, stryofoam to-go containers, plastic bags from the taco trucks. There needs to be more, easy-to-access, lidless trash receptacles placed around the parking areas to promote tossing garbage--ALL of the parking areas from the pier down to the Veterans Memorial. DEEP should be involved as this is not healthy for the Sound or the storm drains. I have several pictures I can share, but am only able to upload one.
