Very simple really. If you get the message you aren’t worth the money to clean the building, you’ll stop caring about it being clean, you’ll stop caring about keeping it clean.
Research shows that if you leave a car with a broken window on the street, next day it will have two broken windows and the lights knocked out. Day three and someone cut the tires. A week later nothing is left unbroken.
“But CBC video of the building showed rotting walls and broken concrete. The garbage chutes were said to be damaged and disposal areas dark and filthy.”
That’s why people started throwing garbage off balconies.
Bonus: less stink IN the building.
