CAUSS - Citizens Against Ugly Street Spam

Citizens Against Ugly Street Spam is an informal group of citizens from around the country who want to improve their communities by reducing or eliminating street spam. You may consider yourself part of CAUSS if you support this goal. There is no membership and no dues to pay. This web site is the primary means through which CAUSS supporters exchange information. Be sure to check out the forum where people post questions, answers, and comments. Since its inception in Texas in 1997, CAUSS members have removed and discarded hundreds of thousands of signs across the United States. We now have active members in virtually every city in the U.S., with new members joining our ranks daily.

What Are The Most Effective Ways to Eliminate Street Spam?

You can help by removing illegal signs in your neighborhood. The more people who help, the less spam will be visible. You can also contact the Code Enforcement office in your city to report offending signs, request prompt removal, find out about existing laws, and ask how you can assist on a volunteer basis. You can lobby your city and county council for stronger laws and better enforcement. Finally you can write to the editor. Editorials carry a lot of weight and are monitored by public officials.
