Trash Problems

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

These were the disgusting scenes repeated on several corners of Avenue M yesterday morning. The public trash cans were not just overflowing, they were surrounded by heaps of garbage.

Last year, the Department of Sanitation admitted it had ended its regular pick-ups of trash on commercial strips, only emptying trash from public cans when trucks are out for residential runs. That means when people illegally dump household trash in these public cans, the mess just piles up.

Do we need more pick-ups, ticketing of people who deposit household trash, to get rid of the cans, or some other alternative? What do you think would work?

If you think it’s a problem and would like to see a solution, please call 311 to report it when you see it. Take photos and send them to us and we’ll keep track, and register the complaint with Community Board 14.

Illegally Dumped Tires Found in the Area

Monday, August 1st, 2011

A report came in at the Ditmas Park Blog that someone had dumped car tires in a few locations overnight, and according to a comment, tires were seen on East 21st and Farragut Road. Seems like someone was driving around, dumping them all over. Anyone else notice piles of tires on the streets this morning? If so, call 311 and file a report!

Don’t throw your tub of Country Crock out the window of your car when you’re done snacking on it.
