NY-Some Neighborhoods Getting Trash Removal Hauled Off More Often 

15 Aug 2018 1:13 PM

Thanks to a funding boost to the sanitation department, Street-corner garbage cans are getting emptied more often in several New York City neighborhoods, the City Council said.

“Clean streets are imperative to the health of our communities and residents,” Councilman Antonio Reynoso (D-Brooklyn) said in a statement. “Yet in the past, the services provided to low-income outer borough neighborhoods have lagged behind those provided to wealthier districts.”

Many NY neighborhoods will benefit from an increase in corner waste receptacle pickup that started July 1st supported by $14.7 million in the current city budget, Council officials said.

The program aims to keep streets cleaner across the city, with a focus on outer-borough areas where trash pickup hasn’t been as good as it should be.
