Things That Are Dumb: The never-ending CSX mess

For many years, garbage has littered the CSX tracks through our area. Complaints have come from local residents with no response from the railroad. While the railroad is not responsible for the placement of the debris ‒ it is the dumpers and the homeless who set up camp and leave lots of garbage behind ‒ CSX is responsible for cleaning it up. The worst spots are along Eliot, 57th, and Grand Avenues. Of these the worst is 57th Avenue. Council Member Holden and Assembly Member Barnwell have been contacted and have said that they will try to get CSX to be a good neighbor.
