Now this is just crazy and is an obvious money making scheme. So now these people have to pay way more so cops can look down there alley way easier. I wonder how long before all big cities copy this greedy bastard that owns this company.
Here comes the trash gold rush!The manager of the building, the Windham Apartments at Fifth and Blanchard, is in a tough spot, and he's not alone. Since the city took away Belltown's Dumpsters in April, people are supposed to put their trash out in the alley for pickup twice a day by a company called CleanScapes that charges $5 a bag for its big, green trash bags.
The Clear Alleys Program, as it's called, was designed to create Dumpster-free sightlines for police and get residents to reduce trash through recycling and composting -- there are clear bags and orange bags for that, or you can get rigid totes of blue (recycling) or green (food waste).
CleanScapes calls him the "alley czar." His job, without exaggeration, is to examine your trash -- that is, if you put it out in the alley in an unapproved, non-CleanScapes bag or bin.
