What is the main cause of littering (other than uncivilized slobs) on Oak Park Avenue in the Hemingway District? The Tribune's RedEye. Because it's free and accessible, commuters (among others) take them out of the news box, read them until the bus arrives, then leave the paper on the bench. The wind takes it from there, spreading the pages up and down the sidewalk and street. So the wind is partly to blame, Redeye is partly to blame, and readers are partly to blame.
The result is an unsightly mess.
That's not the whole problem. Each morning you can find the traces of the uncivilized slobs. But Redeye pages scattered by the wind is a lot more noticeable. Any ideas on how to solve it?
