PSA: Garbage Collection in Alleyways Suspended

The Crown Heights Jewish Community Council has issued an advisory to members of the community that the NYC Dept. of Sanitation has suspended the collection of garbage while they focus on clearing the snow. Additionally, when resumed, garbage collection will not take place in alleyways until the snow melts, and all garbage must be placed on the sidewalk at the proper times.

Rabbi Eli Cohen of the CHJCC released the following statement:

Garbage and recycling pickups have been suspended while the Sanitation Department clears the snow. Once that work is complete, the City will announce that collections will resume. However, Garbage trucks will likely still not be able to get into the alleys. We have confirmed with the Sanitation garage that, until the snow is gone, all collections will be made at the curbside in front of the houses.

Please keep your neighborhood clean and rat-free. Do not allow garbage to pile up behind your home.

    It’s time to stop hiding the trash in the back, and bring it upfront.

      The Department of Sanitation makes the street cleaning rules, not the Vaad.

    NOW THAT OUR “COUNCIL” LET THE SANITATION DEPT. GET AWAY WITH THIS LAST YEAR, THEY NOW HAVE A PRECEDENT TO CONTINUE THIS OUTRAGEOUS POLICY..LAST YEAR WAS AN ANOMALY WHERE WE HAD A ICED UP CONDITION FOR WEEKS,BUT NOW THE SANITATION DEPT. IS OBVIOUSLY GOING TO CONTINUE THIS POLICY REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH SNOW IS ON THE GROUND. IT IS BAD ENOUGH TO HAVE RATS IN THE ALLEYWAYS, DO WE WANT OUR CHILDREN WALKING TO SCHOOL AND PLAYING IN THE STREETS FACING THIS GRAVE DANGER ? CALL OUR COUNCIL AND EXPRESS YOUR OUTRAGE OF THEM LETTING THIS POLICY TAKE EFFECT.

    the piles of snow on the edge of the sidewalk, and the snowed-in cars will make it impossible for the garbage collectors to get to the garbage. and then the narrowly shovelled paths will be blocked by garbage bags…
    thanks, community council, for another great idea…

    This is why I will never live in this rat infested place. People call on your councils to make your place livable. Brooklyn is like living in Detroit but with people.
