HINGHAM (CBS) – With most of the snow melted, it is time for spring cleaning.

“It’s kind of gross. It’s kind of sad. It definitely needs to be cleaned up,” said Boston resident Jack Willson of all the trash in the streets.

The city of Boston said in March it removed 350 tons of trash from the major city streets.

On April 1st, Boston will start street sweeping neighborhoods. People who do not move their vehicle during street sweeping hours face a $40 fine and being towed.

Hingham Police Sergeant Steven Dearth snapped a photo of two signs pushed down to the ground. He posted it to the department’s Facebook page as an example of what the melting snow has revealed.

“Those two signs were on Rockland Street which is part of the state controlled road. They just help to show what’s uncovered by the record amount of snow that we had,” said Dearth.

He said towns and cities are well aware of damage and repairs are prioritized.

“Obviously if a stop sign is down that will be fixed immediately,” said Dearth.
