A street audit released through the City Office of the Controller showed that San Francisco’s commercial routes are filthier than usual. More litter was found on these streets than last year, according to the Examiner. Less street cleaning on residential streets caused no change in the amount of trash in these areas. However, we imagine it involved fewer parking tickets for the city to cash in on.

The dirtiest streets, according to the report? Mission, Stockton and Third Streets, as well as Geary Avenue.

The cleanest streets were Dolores Street, Judson Avenue, San Benito Way and Divisidero Avenue.

    Judson Avenue vs. Mission Street? San Benito Way vs. Geary Blvd? Judson is a nice neighborhood street that most people Mapquest unless you went to Riordan or CCSF. San Benito Way is a only 3-blocker in St. Francis Wood (real nice Christmas lights though).

    Comparing Dirty with Less Dirty might be better illustrated if the commercial streets were assessed separately from the cul de sacs.

    What surprises me most in the article: Divisadero “Avenue”. It’s clean enough I guess … but never heard it called anything but a Street.

    Maybe it got upgraded from street to avenue with the new beautification efforts. Which- having once lived in the area for many a year is welcomed. Nice to see some trees. But I honestly don’t know that I’ve heard it called anything other than simply Divisadero or Divis.
