(Updated with a better photo and location)
One of the new ‘green’ garbage receptacles has been defaced by a sticker that says Billboards Littering Long Beach: City Council pursues a different kind of green in exchange for urban blight. The location of this particular receptacle is over near Starbucks on Park Avenue.
While seabythecity agree with the message, we don’t condone such action. The best way to protest these billboards is with your wallet, talking to the advertisers and telling them why you think billboards are a bad idea for Long Beach or with your voice towards our city. Not by defacing public property. You are actually making the situation even worse.
