Because as we all know, customers don't toss trash on the ground, corporations doOakland officials are so fed up with fast-food trash that they want to tax the businesses they blame for much of the city's garbage woes, then use the money to clean up the streets.
''It's not fair that the residents have to clean up after a fast-food establishment that's making a profit,'' said Councilwoman Jane Brunner, who proposed the new ordinance. ''A city is judged by how clean it is, and Oakland definitely has a major litter problem. It's time to clean up.''
