Piles of rubbish on Brookside Road and abandoned mattresses off Thornton Road are some of the latest examples of trash being left around Stockton that were noticed by Record readers.

The Record will continue to spotlight the problem in hopes that the city, Caltrans, property owners and individual citizens will do more to help a city badly in need of both trash pickup and the common decency to not leave trash in the first place.
