Suburban Rat Poison!

Posted by jdg | 9:40 AM

A lot of people have told me I'm full of it when I suggest that some of Detroit's trash problem comes from suburbanites treating the city like a no-fee dump---they believe that the dumped trash all comes from Detroiters treating their own city that way (and plenty do). But this is about the best visual evidence I've ever found that some of the garbage you see piled in vacant buildings and lots was dumped there by unscrupulous suburban entities---in this case a mostly empty package of rat poison that someone from a near-western suburb didn't want to dispose of legally. I found this while poking around out by the old city airport yesterday with Jose Camilo Vergara.
