We’ve discovered why the streets of Berkeley look so messy, especially during this finals season. And no, it’s not because of that bum on the corner over there.

It’s because students leave their shit around the city like it’s their own messy dorm room.

CBS 5 is reporting that it’s become so much of a problem that the university has set up a hotline for people to call if they see a mess on their street corner.

UC Berkeley is encouraging anyone who sees trash to dial (510) 643-5309, and the university will send someone to pick up the garbage.

The campus will also be setting up debris bins around the city where there is a large population of students so that they can throw all their old readers and textbooks away, instead of leaving them in the bushes.

Hey, instead of throwing those old readers away, why not give them to that bum on your local street corner? He needs to get an education too.
