As the school year came to an end, so did rental leases around Isla Vista. Sidewalks were filled with household items that were either free for the public to take or contributed to landfill. 

Seeing as this is a common byproduct of students moving out, I.V. residents have known this to be the norm. Unfortunately, the large amount of miscellaneous furniture, clothing and trash inconveniently cluttered most of the streets, eventually leading to traffic. These photos showcase how simple it can be to move your trash into proper garbage containers. Whether or not it’s your first time in I.V., you’re in for a show. Welcome to the neighborhood.
