Another update on what is becoming a regular topic of interest in the neighborhood: refuse, rubish, trash! Here’s Judy Stanton from the BHA: “Our local garage superintendent informed me (Tuesday night) that he will have regular garbage trucks in the Heights Wednesday, but no recyclables whatsoever will be picked up. Even if the DSNY does not plan to issue summonses, the neighborly thing to do is keep what is not going to be picked up off the curb and preferably out of sight. Reminder: The corner baskets are for pedestrian litter only.”
Mayor Bloomberg, meanwhile, says that heavily impacted nabes from Hurricane Sandy—including Staten Island, south Queens and southern Brooklyn—will have collection & debris removal around the clock, while less impacted areas may see collections reduced. “Areas normally receiving three times a week collection may only receive two collections per week, while areas that receive two times per week collection may only receive one collection while emergency debris removal work continues.” Sanitation crews are currently working 12-hour shifts, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
