Once upon a time, the City of Detroit required landlords to have a dumpster present when they evict someone. They would also levy hefty fines against the land lord if they piled stuff at the curb. Each fine would run into the hundreds of dollars.
Today, trash just spills over into the road, like is shown in the photo above from Ashton. Piles of trash like these will likely stay there for weeks at time until the neighbors remove it ourselves.
This is so damn frustrating.
