Letter to the Editor: Beverly Hills’ Alleys Attract Unwanted Attention

October 13, 2011

The issues with the alleys in Beverly Hills seem to be a growing problem mostly ignored by our city officials when really there is a simple fix. First let’s discuss the issues: Has anyone noticed the growing amount of dumpster divers scouring our trash for recyclables, roaming the alleys at all odd hours? While it is great that someone in the city is being green and doing our recycling, it brings a magnitude of problems. Identity theft can start with the trash. All it takes is one credit card statement or even one doctor or phone bill being thrown out. These dumpster divers are often transients who are also responsible for small thefts such as car parts and bicycles. In addition, dumpster divers pull the trash out onto the alley streets making a huge mess and then they leave it there. The city spends tons of money on alley cleanup and yet there is always a mess. The solution however is very simple: City Mandated Locked Recycle Bins. Without the idea of a profit coming from our dumpsters, the transients will slowly start to diminish, lowering the amount we spend to clean our alleys, lowering the possibility of identity theft and also lowering the poverty-stricken dumpster divers ability to spot, stake out and thieve in our neighborhoods. In addition to the safety and cleanliness issues this will resolve, the city will also finally be green and can profit off of our recyclables to aid in the little alley clean up that will still be needed, and can fund more things like city preservation and restoration.
