City launches "UnLitter Us" initiative

In an effort to free the city from the wrinkled potato chip bags, soda cans, beer cans, and fast-food wrappers that some people toss with reckless abandon, the city’s Streets Department has launched it's UnLitter Us campaign. The message will be carried through block-by-block community programs and PSAs from spoken artists, rhythmically talking about the beauty of a clean city, and urging people to use a trash can.
