Mess on Hillside Street on Mission Hill

A disgusted Mission Hill resident filed this report from Hillside Street, shortly before noon:

Just got back from walking my dog in the middle of the street since most of the sidewalks look like this. This trash has been on the sidewalk next to our house since yesterday early evening. Come on City of Boston and Mayor Walsh, you can do better!!! As a nurse who's been living here since the Spring I'm not finding this unsanitary situation amusing... My 1st and last 9/1 on the Hill!
