It doesn’t have a severe garbage problem. It has the same garbage problem most areas of Chicago have and is not nearly as bad as many areas on the south and west sides.
At most Jan Schakowsky has only a small corner of Albany Park. It’s mostly Luis Gutierrez territory—the gerrymandering in the city means that few neighborhoods are not split between congressional districts.
O’Connor only has a small portion—Dick Mell is THE alderman for Albany Park.
I’ve noticed certain areas throughout the country that are “diverse” have huge garbage problems. Though the two worst garbage problems on a large scale are on the road between Shreveport, LA and Texarcana begininning exactly at the Arkansas border. Then along the railline between Arizona, and Sinaloa Mexico. Of course every rural town in central america, as well large cities in africa might as well be landfills.
