Click Me Too to show your support for this idea, and we’ll keep you updated on its progress.
Ask anyone to describe how San Francisco smells and you’ll learn a lot about the bad impression our sidewalks and transit stations make on visitors and neighbors.

You have the chance to change this (without getting your hands dirty!) The Board of Supervisors is drafting the City Budget right now, and we need your help to make sure that they understand we believe more attention should be paid to the cleaning and care of public spaces.

Please email your Supervisor today and share your support for the Clean, Green, and Safe budget priorities. We need your help. You can make a difference.

Download 311 and report problems like graffiti, trash, and human waste. You can add photos, and track your reports. The open data collected helps the City and orgs like ours to understand trends and allocate the necessary resources.

What if we required businesses (including apartment buildings) to secure the lids of their trashcans? This is a very windy city and open trash bins inevitably topple and fill our beautiful city with rubbish. Here's an example from Zeke's in SoMa that really helps.

Supervisor Scott Wiener had initially pushed for doubling the number of full-time officers from 25 to 50; the mayor added three positions in his budget, and the agency said it would get another four when Candlestick Park closes. Wiener and Farrell settled on adding about 10 new positions at a cost of $1 million a year."

Supervisors wrap up budget negotiations early

People at risk of losing their housing, park patrol officers and seniors in need of home-delivered meals were among the winners as the Board of Supervisors wrapped up budget negotiations, tinkering with about $23 million of the mayor's $8.6 billion spending plan for the fiscal year that begins Tuesday.

How about bringing mobile showers & toilets for the homeless to SOMA. Part of keeping the streets clean means providing sanitation services they can use: bit.ly/pLavaMae

"...the Department of Public Works recently put out a friendly reminder on Twitter warning that residents face fines between $200 and $1,000 for such 'illegal dumping.'"

The festivities will get under way at UN Plaza at 10 AM, when the three winning posters will be unveiled. Immediately following, volunteers, working with public works crews, will be provided with equipment to pick up litter on Market Street from 10th to Fifth streets. As they're working, they'll get to see all the Giant Sweep posters, which will be placed on display along the corridor in a multi-location popup art gallery.
