Getting the Message Across

Today I diverge, no recipes, no gardening news, no tales of my chickens or dogs. I'm taking a vitual vacation and posting a photo I took a few years ago in Paris.
This is a sign on a Paris street. I like it because even if you don't read French, you can understand it. In fact, one doesn't have to be able to read at all to get the message. I also like it because it's in the first person. It tries to achieve a goal without sounding like an order. I'm not totally fluent in French, but I translate it as "I care about my neighborhood. I pick up".
