About this Spot
The Buchanan interchange is regularly cleared, so the trash here is smaller, and spread out over a wider area.
This area includes a large area under freeway overpasses, the area is criss-crossed with on and off-ramps. Use under crossings and crosswalks wherever possible.
Trash is residual campsite detritus and a litter, blown in from the highway.
Avoid cleaning active campsites unless you talk to the residents and get guidance from residents about what can be taken away. Potentially needles around homeless campsites.
